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.

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.

If true, the Dodgers' actions would violate baseball rules prohibiting scouting in Cuba. They also may violate the U.S.
