  • The Braves signed Rodriguez to a two-year, $11.5 million contract back in November

    So how does this work, since he didn't get hurt at work? Do the Braves still have to pay him? Do the teams have insurance for this sort of thing?

    I imagine that unless what got them injured wasnt specifically banned in their contract the team has to pay them.  Lots of teams have a list of activities you cant do.  Getting crushed by a suspect in a stolen cop car probably isnt one of them.  Im not an agent or an owner so what do I know.

    They will have to pay, but more than likely they have an insurance policy that will kick in to recoup a good % of it.

    Teams do generally carry insurance for freak accidents to cover things like medical retirements and such.  I don't think I've seen anything for a lost season(unless the player violates his contract and they sue the player).

    He still gets paid.  The team may be able to recoup some against insurance, or by suing the estate of the decedent.

    I doubt someone who dies in a wreck they caused while fleeing in a stolen police car has much of an estate.  Maybe though but doubtful.

    Well, yea, doesn't mean you shouldn't do it

    But where will they get the OTHER $11,499,950 from?
  • Braves infielder Sean Rodriguez

    Technically, in 2016, he was a 1B/2B/SS/RF/3B/LF/CF.  And aside from SS, he was pretty good at most of them.

    One of those guys who is a lot more useful than his bat alone would indicate.
