MIAMI (AP) - Mark Buehrle has issued a parting shot at Miami Marlins' management after his stay with the team lasted only one tumultuous season.
The left-hander was part of the blockbuster trade that sent Buehrle, All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, right-hander Josh Johnson and two other players to the Toronto Blue Jays as the Marlins pared $146.5 million in future payroll.
In a statement issued Wednesday through his agent, Buehrle said he was lied to on multiple occasions, just like Marlins fans. Two Marlins executives did not respond to a request for comment.
Buehrle signed a $58 million, four-year deal with the Marlins during their unprecedented spending spree a year ago. The Marlins then endured a disastrous first season in their new ballpark and finished last in the NL East at 69-93.
