K-Rod scheduled for Tuesday morning court appearance

Sep 13, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

On the disqualified list following an alleged mid-August assault on his father’s girlfriend, former Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez faces an uncertain future.  But we know where he will be tomorrow.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Rodriguez is scheduled to appear in a New York courtroom on Tuesday morning for a hearing related to the third-degree assault and second-degree harassment charges that were levied on him last month.

K-Rod is also recovering from right thumb surgery and is not taking in salary from the Mets because they were able to convert his contract to unguaranteed. 

The Players Association has filed a grievance on his behalf to retain some of those funds and a mid-October hearing will decide the fate of the $11.5 million remaining on his contract for next season.  No matter the ruling, there’s a good chance he will never again pitch in a Mets uniform.

    Pretty sure you meant Girl Friends Father… why would he assault his Fathers Girlfriend

    And more accurately, he is on the disqualified list because he injured himself during the incident, not the incident itself, since he pitched a few days later because the injury was discovered.
    This is probably an important point to make since that will probably be part/ most of the players association case.
    The Mets are clearly not that upset at his actions, they are just pretending to be to not have to pay him.

    Can you say, he did them a huge favor? This guy has an issue with allowing earned runs off base runners. over 50% of base runners with him on the mound, score.

    LOL! Well my dad did have one GF I would have loved to assault. Had she not been a female and all…

    “Former Mets closer…”

    They haven’t DFA’d him or anything. At least yet, anyway.
