MLB, union: Florida Marlins need to spend more revenue-sharing money – Florida Marlins – MiamiHerald.com

The Florida Marlins have been singled out by Major League Baseball and the players’ union over allegations the club hasn’t been channeling the revenue sharing money it receives each year into player salaries.

While team officials say they have done no wrong, they indicated in a joint agreement released Tuesday that payroll would be increased as the team heads toward the opening of its new ballpark in 2012.

“In response to our concerns that revenue sharing proceeds have not been used as required, the Marlins have assured the Union and the Commissioner’s Office that they plan to use such proceeds to increase player payroll annually as they move toward the opening of their new ballpark,” Michael Weiner, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, said in a prepared statement.
