Mondesi Salary Withheld

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The dispute that resulted in a Dominican Republic court ordering Raul Mondesi to pay Mario Guerrero 1 percent of his career earnings, previously reported on Dodger Thoughts in February, has reached a new level: Mondesi's current team, the Pirates, are withholding his salary.

According to The Associated Press, not only are Mondesi's bank accounts frozen - so is Mondesi himself.

"I froze when they called me in the office to tell me that I won't be paid for these first two weeks, and possibly not for future weeks until the problem is resolved," Mondesi told The Associated Press by telephone from New York, where his team is playing the Mets.

Pirates VP of communications Patty Paytas said the team is putting Mondesi's wages into an interest-bearing escrow account until the case is resolved.

Despite the fact that most if not all legal decisions on this case have gone against him, Mondesi still expects a thaw to end the freeze.

"I have no agreement with Guerrero, and he never taught me anything," Mondesi said. "I'm not going to give him a cent of my money."
