Weiner visits Red Sox camp


FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Michael Weiner, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, made the rounds at Red Sox camp on Monday, briefing the club on a number of issues.

The visit came a day after Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia emphatically said he would support a stricter drug policy in Major League Baseball.

Weiner reiterated that such revisions would be a "2014 issue," but he did meet with Pedroia.

"I hope I had a chance to educate him. I did have a good conversation with Dustin, and he -- as always -- was very attentive during the meeting," said Weiner. "The purpose of these meetings is in part to report on things in the past year. In part, it's very important to hear what guys have to say, but it's also to give guys some things to think about. Dustin is a passionate guy. He's going to have his opinion, and what's great about Dustin is we're going to know what it is."
