Mets GM Sandy Alderson will study the international market for MLB

His last job, before he was tasked with rebuilding the Mets, sent Sandy Alderson to the Dominican Republic. There he helped deal with the rampant age and identity fraud among young prospects, a job that commissioner Bud Selig asked him to take.

Now Alderson will serve on a joint MLB-Player’s Association committee designed to study the international market. The latest collective bargaining agreement penalizes clubs for what the league deems excessive spending in Latin America. The commissioner’s office hopes this will lead to a world-wide draft in the coming years.

The committee will discuss this complex issue. The co-chairs are union head Michael Weiner, and his MLB counterpart Rob Manfred. Other members include Tampa Bay general manager Andrew Friedman; MLB senior VP of baseball operations Kim Ng; MLBPA officials Tony Clark, Stan Javier and Rick Shapiro.

The prospect of a draft is bringing pushed by the commissioner's office. Last month Manfred called the new rules a "poison pill" to induce a draft. Weiner remains wary of that inevitability.

MLB to begin blood testing for HGH (Steroids)

Major League Baseball’s owners and players are close to completing a new collective bargaining agreement that for the first time will include blood testing for human growth hormone, according to the NY Times. The testing will be a significant step for baseball, allowing it to move ahead of other professional sports leagues, including the N.F.L., in confronting the troublesome issue of a drug that has long evaded detection.

The bargaining agreement, which could be announced early next week, calls for blood testing to begin in February, when players report to spring training. Players who test positive will face a 50-game suspension, which will be the same as the first-time penalty for a positive steroid test.

Baseball will be the first of the major North American professional sports to do any type of blood testing for drugs among their unionized players. In 2010, baseball introduced blood testing for H.G.H. on minor league players because the step could be taken without the consent of the union.
