Statement of MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 – Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark today released the following statement:

“The proposed trades between the Dodgers, Red Sox, Twins, and Angels need to be resolved without further delay. The events of this last week have unfairly put several Players’ lives in a state of limbo. The unethical leaking of medical information as well as the perversion of the salary arbitration process serve as continued reminders that too often Players are treated as commodities by those running the game.”


NUEVA YORK, 7 de febrero - El Director Ejecutivo de la Asociación de Peloteros de Grandes Ligas, Tony Clark, emitió hoy la siguiente declaración:

“Los intercambios propuestos entre los Dodgers, los Red Sox, los Twins y los Angels deben resolverse sin más demora. Los eventos de esta última semana han puesto injustamente la vida de varios jugadores en un estado de limbo. La filtración de información médica, así como la perversión del proceso de arbitraje salarial sirven como recordatorios continuos de que con demasiada frecuencia los jugadores son tratados como productos básicos por aquellos que ejecutan el juego".
