Charlie Morton, Lucas Giolito, Zack Britton Discuss Lack of Contact amid MLB Lockout

Bleacher Report

Business around MLB came to a halt after team owners locked the players out amid negotiations over a new collective bargaining agreement. For some players, the extent of the shutdown is less than ideal.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito and Atlanta Braves starter Charlie Morton lamented to Fox Sports' Jake Mintz how they're unable to speak with coaches on their team's staff.

Giolito reflected how he has known White Sox pitching coach Ethan Katz since he was 15.

"Beyond baseball, he is a very, very close friend of mine," he said. "He was at my wedding; I was at his. And I just think it’s strange and unfortunate that because of the lockout, he’s being told he’s not allowed to talk to me or any of the other guys."
