|MLBPA News Release|
Major League Baseball Players Association executive director Tony Clark today issued the following statement regarding recent public remarks by club officials about Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales that clearly violate the parties' collectively bargained agreements:
"I am angered that numerous, anonymous baseball executives have blatantly and intentionally violated our collective bargaining agreement by offering to ESPN comments about the free-agent values of Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. These statements undermine the free-agent rights of the players and depress their market value. Today, I have called upon the Commissioner's Office to investigate immediately and thoroughly the sources of these statements and to take appropriate action to enforce our agreement."
