Closer Jonathan Papelbon has basically been a giant headache for the Washington Nationals ever since they acquired him midway through the 2015 season.
And now the team has another issue of his to deal with — whether or not they need to pay him after an incident in which he choked teammate Bryce Harper.
WEEI reports, citing anonymous MLB sources, that Papelbon has filed a grievance against the Nats after they failed to pay him during a team-imposed four-game suspension at the end of the 2015 season.
