 NEW YORK (AP) -The baseball players' association filed grievances Thursday over the suspensions of Seattle Mariners pitcher Julio Mateo and infielder Alberto Callaspo.
The union's grievance on behalf of Mateo also claims the Mariners improperly optioned him to the minor leagues.
Mateo was arrested in New York following a dispute at a Manhattan hotel on May 5 involving a woman police said was his wife. He was arrested on a charge of third-degree assault, posted bond and was released. Police said his wife needed five stitches to her mouth.
Seattle optioned him to the minors on May 5 and suspended him for 10 days without pay for missing the May 5 game. If allowed to stand, the suspension would cost him $54,645 of his $1 million salary this year. When his suspension was over, Seattle said Wednesday he had been put on the Triple-A inactive list.
Arizona placed Callaspo on the restricted list without pay Friday, a day after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife. Callaspo was taken into custody on suspicion of misdemeanor assault and felony criminal damage. Following an initial court appearance Friday, he was released without bail.
Callaspo's contract calls for him to earn the minimum $380,000 while he is in the major leagues.
Under baseball's new labor agreement, grievances are to be heard within a year of being filed.
