Livan Hernandez owes a lot of people money. And as a result, his checks from the Atlanta Braves are gonna be smaller:

A Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge issued an order Monday to garnish ex-Washington Nationals pitcher Livan Hernandez‘s wages with the Atlanta Braves.

Hernandez owes SunTrust Bank $469,387.22 from a line of credit and promissory note, according to a summary judgment entered against him in October.

Hernandez makes $750,000 with the Braves, so depending on how harsh the order is, he could be playing for relative peanuts this year.

    Really this is a brilliant maneuver by the Braves. Livan won’t hit the salad bar, so they’re trying to get some garnish into his diet this way.

    Livan…Livan likes his money…
    He makes a lot, they say
    Spends his days counting
    In a garage by the motorway….

    If this is the only place he owes, he’ll still make $93,112.78 taking into account a 25% tax rate. Not exactly peanuts. And thats only if he has to pay it all back this year.

      It probably depends on if Georgia puts a percentage cap on garnishments. People earning wages in Missouri can apply for relief that caps their garnishment percentage at 10 or 15% if taking more will provide undue hardship, which would probably be a hard argument for Livan to win.

    How is it that a guy who has made 51 million according to baseball reference need a line of credit for 500,000?
    I will never understand what athletes do with their money.

      They probably do things like build $26 million dollar mansions.

      In the words of the imortal Patrick Ewing: we spend alot of money because we make alot of money.

    Still overpaid. Now if we can just get him in kangaroo court and charge him 20 bucks for each fastball a little leaguer could hit..
