“That type of information should not leave the clubhouse where it was intended to stay,” general manager Jon Daniels said.
The sports blog, JoeSportsFan.com, published the speech on Sunday, saying: “The speech was recorded by a member of the Rangers clubhouse staff.”
Voices of players Michael Young, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz, as well as pitching coach Mike Maddux, could be heard.
Daniels said the team would not have any further comment until further investigation was completed.
