Major league baseball's policy regarding Cuban players is two-pronged: * Clubs are not allowed to scout, sign or negotiate with players in any country they cannot enter and do business. * Native players can be scouted at any location outside their country "so long as all clubs have access to scout those players."

The Dodgers will be fined for signing Adrian Beltre when he was 15, but will not lose him to free agency, according to a broadcast report Thursday night. Fox Sports News said major league baseball will announce Monday that any possible violation involving the third baseman took place five years ago, beyond baseball's statute of limitations. The amount of the fine was not disclosed.

Because they signed two Cuban players, the Dodgers were included in a U.S. government list of 86 companies that were fined for violating an international trade law, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday on its Web site. In cases dating to 1998, the Dodgers were fined by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control under the Trading With the Enemy Act. Cuba is among the nations on the "enemies" list that also includes Iran, Iraq and North Korea.

Baseball warned the bickering umpires not to harass each other as the infighting over their failed mass resignation plan got nastier and more emotional. One of the game's most respected umpires broke down in tears as he was interviewed on television before Saturday's "Game of the Week." "I'm not going to give up my job of 25 years and sit down," said Richie Garcia, one of the 22 umpires whose resignations were accepted, effective Sept. 2.

Baseball's investigation into the alleged illegal signing of third baseman Adrian Beltre by the Dodgers is not expected to be completed quickly. "It could take several weeks and I would certainly expect it to take into December, particularly in light of the [Thanksgiving] season and the possible necessity of travel to the Dominican [Republic]," Sandy Alderson, baseball's executive vice president of operations, said Monday.

Concluding a lengthy investigation, the commissioner's office has granted free agency to two Dodger minor leaguers who had accused the team of holding secret tryouts in Cuba and arranging their defections in violation of major league rules. The Dodgers have also been fined, a baseball official confirmed, but it was unclear whether the club violated a U.S. trade embargo that prohibits American companies from conducting business in the Communist-ruled country.

Cuban first baseman Juan Diaz had a promising career with the Dodgers until they got caught for illegal scouting. Now his future is with the Red Sox. Diaz, declared a free agent by the commissioner's office in June, signed with Boston on Saturday. He's expected to report to the Red Sox minor league camp this week. In three seasons in the Dodger system, Diaz had 65 homers, 219 runs batted in and batted .267 with a .503 slugging percentage.

Two Cuban minor leaguers say the Dodgers held secret tryouts for them in their homeland, arranged their escapes and then ordered them to lie about it, according to the Boston Globe. First baseman Juan Carlos Diaz, 23, and outfielder Josue Perez, 21, have asked the commissioner's office to declare them free agents on grounds they were signed illegally. If true, the Dodgers' actions would violate baseball rules prohibiting scouting in Cuba. They also may violate the U.S.

Underage signings and secret tryouts prompted major league baseball to open its first Latin American office here on Dec. 5. The move has been rumored as the precursor to a worldwide draft, but office administrator Rafael Perez says the goal is to uphold baseball's rules and enhance its reputation in Latin America. That's no small challenge when the Dodgers alone have been fined repeatedly for violating baseball's rules in scouting and signing four Latin-born players.
