ANAHEIM (AP) — The Major League Baseball Players Association is furious about leaks of information surrounding Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton.

In a statement Thursday, the union says the anonymous leaks about Hamilton’s situation “are cowardly, undermine the integrity of our collectively bargained agreements and in some instances have been wholly inaccurate.”
