NEW YORK (AP) -Mets prospect Lastings Milledge is in trouble with team once again, this time for making a rap CD that uses foul and offensive language.
The song, ``Bend Ya Knees'' was on the Web site www.souljaboirecords.com, the record label the 22-year-old outfielder founded. Milledge can be heard using a racist term for blacks and language derogatory to women.
``We don't approve of the lyrics,'' New York general manager Omar Minaya said Wednesday.
Minaya said he spoke to Milledge - currently at Triple-A New Orleans and on the disabled list - and conveyed the team's position. Minaya said no disciplinary action had been taken, but added that could change.
``We're going to review the conversation and we'll go from there,'' he said. ``He's understanding why we feel that way.''
While the song was removed from the Web site earlier Wednesday, Minaya said he believed the song was going to be released.
``We can't do anything to prevent its release,'' he said.
Milledge was 0-for-3 with the Mets before being sent to the minors on April 13. In his rookie season, he hit .239 with four home runs in 166 at-bats.
Milledge was the Mets' top prospect when he made his major league debut in the middle of last year. In his first month, he showed off the talent that made him such a highly regarded rookie, but also made his share of mistakes on and off the field.
After hitting his first big league homer - a tying drive with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning against San Francisco - he perturbed players in both dugouts by high-fiving fans along the railing when he ran out to right field to take his position.
Later, he was reprimanded for not running hard on the bases. He also arrived late to the clubhouse in Philadelphia for a day game.
Near the end of the season, a pointed sign was posted in his locker at Washington - ``Know your place, rook. Your teammates,'' it said.
Milledge is out of action because of an injured right foot injury. He isn't expected to be ready to play for at least another few weeks.
``His focus is to get healthy,'' Minaya said.
Manager Willie Randolph sidestepped questions about Milledge before the game against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.
``I don't have any reaction,'' he said. ``I haven't heard much about it.''
