NEW YORK – Baseball players may file a collusion grievance charging owners with conspiring against free agents last winter.
“We have concerns about the operation of the post-2009 free agent market,” new union head Michael Weiner said Tuesday in a telephone interview with the Associated Press. “We have been investigating that market. Our investigation is far along but not yet complete.”
The sides reached a standstill agreement last year giving the union additional time to decide whether to proceed with a grievance against teams alleging misconduct after the 2008 season.
