It has been months since the Reds filed a grievance against the Nationals. The latter is accused of giving Cincinnati damaged goods when they acquired right-hander Gary Majewski in an eight-player trade that sent outfielder Austin Kearns, infielder Felipe Lopez and reliever Ryan Wagner to Washington on July 13, 2006.
There still is an ongoing investigation on the matter, according to Joe Garagiola Jr., senior vice president of baseball operations for MLB.
"There is nothing to report on the Majewski situation. The case is not closed. There has not been a decision," Garagiola said. "I would like to think we are in the final stages of our fact gathering and then we will proceed to make our recommendations."
Garagiola did not give a timetable as to when a decision will be made.
