The Pittsburgh Pirates finally ran out of patience with absent outfielder Raul Mondesi, terminating his contract Wednesday when he didn't show up for
the start of a three-game series against San Diego.
The Pirates cited breach of contract in ending all dealings with Mondesi, who was hitting .283 with two homers and 14 RBIs when he left them May 7 to
return to his native Dominican Republic and fight a lawsuit.
