Francisco Rodriguez Placed On Disqualified List

Per Adam Rubin, among others. The short of it is that Francisco Rodriguez, who injured his right thumb after inexplicably fighting with his girlfriend's father after a Mets game last week, will forfeit his remaining 2010 salary and will undergo surgery that would have kept him out of action anyway.

The more interesting part is that the Mets have flipped Rodriguez's deal to a non-guaranteed one, which means they could cut him during spring training next year with little financial consequence. Doing so would not only void the final guaranteed year of his contract, but also the ludicrous $17.5 million vesting option for 2012.
