Starlin Castro has funds seized
Starlin Castro has filed a countersuit, according to a source, after reportedly having $3.6 million seized from his bank accounts after the Chicago Cubs shortstop refused to pay three percent of his earnings to a Dominican Republic baseball school.
The source told Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com that the countersuit filed by Castro's attorney discredits that contract and that a father cannot sign away a son's future earnings.
Castro paid Nunez an unspecified amount after signing his first big-league contract, but Nunez believes he is owed future earnings ,and funds were seized from several banks, according to reports.
A two-time All-Star, Castro, 23, signed a seven-year, $60 million contract with the Cubs in 2012.
