Dan Jennings and the Miami Marlins ended their awkward relationship in October, but the two sides still have some affairs to settle.

The club has filed a grievance over the salary that Jennings is earning in his new role with the Washington Nationals, according to the Miami Herald.

The Marlins owe Dan Jennings the difference between his new salary and the $1.5 million they would have paid him this season if he hadn’t been fired. And the Marlins are fuming, and filed a grievance, because they’ve been told Washington is paying Jennings only $100,000 as a special assistant to general manager Mike Rizzo, which they believe is well below a salary commensurate with his responsibilities.

Jennings notably stepped down from his role as Miami’s general manager in May and took over as the team’s manager after he fired Mike Redmond. Under Jennings, the Marlins finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 55-69 record.
