NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the request tells The Associated Press that lawyers for the baseball players' union asked Major League Baseball to submit a slew of financial documents that detail the industry's finances.

The type of financial disclosure the union asked for is more common during overall collective bargaining talks, which play out for many months or years, rather than the limited negotiation time available now.

Cincinnati pitcher Trevor Bauer says owners have lots of ways to hide money.

Tampa Bay All-Star pitcher Blake Snell says he would not take the mound this year if his salary is cut further.
