FLUSHING, N.Y., August 17, 2010 -- The New York Mets on Tuesday announced that they have placed pitcher Francisco Rodriguez on the Disqualified List for conduct in violation of his Uniform Player's Contract.

In addition, the Mets notified the player, his agent, and the MLB Players Association that it has exercised its right to convert Rodriguez's contract with the club to a non-guaranteed contract.

The Mets' decision follows the season-ending injury to the thumb on Rodriguez's right pitching hand as a result of an altercation following last Wednesday night's game at Citi Field.

Rodriguez will not be paid or accrue major-league service time while on the Disqualified List.

Dr. Andrew Weiland of the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan this afternoon performed successful surgery to repair the torn ligament in Rodriguez's thumb this afternoon.
