Major League Baseball has determined there was no agreement between the New York Yankees and New York Mets to suppress the market for Aaron Judge.

The league opened an investigation into the two clubs last week after the MLB Players Association raised some concerns about an article published by SNY earlier this month.

Andy Martino of SNY wrote the Mets were unlikely to pursue Judge in free agency, in part because of a mutual respect between Mets owner Steve Cohen and Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner.

The league requested communications between Cohen and Steinbrenner last week to determine if the owners formulated any kind of agreement for the Mets not to pursue Judge as a free agent, which would have been a collusive violation of the collective bargaining agreement.
