BRANDETON, Fla. — The Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance against the Miami Marlins, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays, accusing the teams of failing to appropriately spend revenue-sharing money.

Union spokesman Chris Dahl, speaking Tuesday at the union's training camp for free agents, said the grievance was filed Friday. Union head Tony Clark declined to comment.

"We have received the complaint and believe it has no merit," Major League Baseball said in a statement.

If the case is not settled, it would proceed to a hearing before Mark Irvings, baseball's independent arbitrator. The grievance was first reported by the Tampa Bay Times.

Miami was 20th in payroll last year for its 40-man roster, according to MLB's final figures. Pittsburgh was 25th, Tampa Bay 27th and Oakland 28th.
