Union may file grievances for Butler, Davis


VERO BEACH, Fla. -- The Major League Baseball Players Association is considering filing grievances against the Los Angeles Dodgers and California Angels on behalf of Brett Butler and Chili Davis, union chief Donald Fehr said yesterday.

The Dodgers offered Butler a one-year, $3.5 million contract in January, then told him a week before the strike ended that the offer was off the table.

Agents Tom Reich and Adam Katz negotiated a three-year contract for about $11.25 million for Davis, but the Angels announced last week that the offer no longer existed.
