In the suit, former Phillies’ batting practice pitcher Ali Modami claims that GM Ruben Amaro, Jr., defamed him and ruined his job prospects with the Washington Nationals and L.A. Dodgers.
Modami, who is seeking a judgment in excess of $100,000, worked for the Phillies from May 2007 until Oct. 11, 2011, when Amaro terminated him because the team wanted to go in a “different direction” and was attempting to “change up the hitting program,” according to the suit, filed by attorney Sidney L. Gold….
But both teams eventually rejected Modami, the suit claims, because Amaro told both teams’ general managers that he was no longer with the Phillies because he was stealing and selling memorabilia, the suit states…..
Former Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth, now with the Nationals, first told Modami what Amaro allegedly said, the suit states.
