We heard earlier this month that the MLBPA would consider holding a training camp for free agents. With so many unsigned, it would make sense for them to get their work in. We discussed this in an open thread, including possible instructors. It is not to be, though. The players’ association has said they will not open such a camp this year, despite a still large number of remaining free agents, even with Bobby Abreu and Adam Dunn landing yesterday. Union head Donald Fehr on the decision: “We don’t think that it’s essential to do that and we still remain hopeful that players will be signed.” Here’s to hoping, Don.
