Major League Baseball vice president Joe Torre told The Associated Press on Sunday the sport is doing everything it can to win fans' trust back when it comes to players using performance-enhancing drugs.

Torre believes MLB is making headway, but cautions it might be a "bumpy" process.

Torre says there wasn't much else he could say regarding the 14 players recently suspended in the Biogenesis scandal. It's a group that includes New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, who is appealing his 211-game suspension.

The former Yankees manager also touched on the topic of baseball's plan to introduce video replay next season. Torre said officials are still "fine-tuning" replays implementations, and they plan to have it completed by the winter meetings.
