The Major League Baseball Players Assn. asked...

The Major League Baseball Players Assn. asked club owners to grant temporary free agency to those players affected by the clubs’ collusion between the 1986 and 1987 seasons. It is asking that the players who were free agents be given several weeks to decide whether to leave their teams or remain under their current contracts. If the owners do not agree, the issue would be decided by an arbitrator.

Among the players who could become free agents again are outfielder Tim Raines of the Montreal Expos, catcher Lance Parrish of the Philadelphia Phillies, second baseman Willie Randolph and pitcher Ron Guidry of the New York Yankees, catcher Rich Gedman of the Boston Red Sox and catcher Bob Boone of the Angels.
