On February 27, 2018 — 2018 – The MLBPA files a grievance against four teams – the Marlins, Rays, Pirates and A’s – accusing them of not investing the money they are obtaining through revenue sharing in the on-field product, as is specified in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. This action is the latest salvo in a war of words between players and ownership that was started by the slow free agent market, resulting in over 100 players still being unsigned when spring training opened two weeks ago.
