With the three-team trade between the Red Sox, Dodgers and Twins running into complications, Mookie Betts, David Price and other players involved in the process — including those in the deal between the Dodgers and Angels — are left in an unorthodox situation.

And the Major League Baseball Players Association isn’t pleased with what’s going on.

Tony Clark, the executive director of the MLBPA, released the following statement on the matter:

“The proposed trades between the Dodgers, Red Sox, Twins, and Angels need to be resolved without further delay. The events of this week have unfairly put several players’ lives in a state of limbo. The unethical leaking of medical information, as well as the perversion of the salary arbitration process, serve as continued reminders that too often players are treated as commodities by those running the game.”
