MLBPA Won’t Protect PED Users

The baseball players’ association may not go to bat for every player involved in Major League Baseball’s latest drug investigation.

Union head Michael Weiner told the New York Daily News that the MLBPA is “not interested” in protecting players for whom overwhelming evidence exists that they used performance-enhancing drugs.

Although he did not refer to any specific players in his interview Wednesday with the Daily News, Weiner emphasized that the union has prioritized a clean program. He told the paper that the union will attempt to “make a deal” for players with overwhelming PED evidence against them.
