The MLB Free-Agent Pool Could Get A Little Smaller

Eleven major league baseball players that are free-agents this season have been asked to speak with George Mitchell regarding his steroid investigation.

Up to 11 players from this year's free-agent class were asked to speak with George Mitchell as part of his investigation into performance-enhancing drugs in baseball.

The union's general counsel, Michael Weiner, made the statement Wednesday to agents attending a meeting in New York.

The Boston Globe's Web site Thursday reported agents were told at the meeting that 11 current free-agent players are named in Mitchell's report.

It will be interesting to see if any of this information is put out to the public. Right now, it doesn't appear that any big names are involved, and those 11 represent less than 1/10 of the free-agents that will be available. However, it would probably only take one or two even marginally popular players to be included on the list for it to be released in some fashion.
