The head of the baseball players union is concerned that free agents who cost a team a draft choice for signing with them are still without jobs.
Tony Clark says the Major League Baseball Players Association is paying attention to the issue.
He spoke after meeting with Red Sox players. It was the second stop on his tour of all 30 major league camps that began Friday in Port Charlotte with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Of the 13 players who would require compensation, three remain unsigned. They’re shortstop Stephen Drew, designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-hander Ervin Santana.
Teams that make qualifying offers to their free agents are entitled to a draft pick as compensation if the player doesn’t accept the offer and signs elsewhere.
