Multimillionaire Alex Rodriguez doesn’t seem too put off that the Yankees aren’t paying him a promised $6 million bonus for catching Willie Mays in home runs. But his union is.

The Major League Baseball Players Association is preparing to file a grievance against the Yankees on A-Rod’s behalf, even though Rodriguez hasn’t complained.

“We are prepared to do what we have to do,” said Greg Bouris, a union spokesman, told CNNMoney Friday in his only comment on the matter.

The contract A-Rod signed with the Yankees after the 2007 season called for him to get a $6 million bonus for reaching each of five milestone home runs, starting with No. 660 matching Mays.
