The hammer might soon come down on the Boston Red Sox after MLB commissioner Rob Manfred spoke with ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt on Wednesday and gave an update on the progress report on the league’s fact finding mission on the Boston Red Sox:
“We are done with the [Red Sox] investigation. There’s been a delay in terms of producing a written report because, frankly, I have not had time to turn to it with the other issues. But we will get a Boston report out before we resume play.”
MLB is looking into allegations that the Red Sox illegally used the replay room to steal signs during the 2018 championship season.
This, of course, comes after former Red Sox manager Alex Cora was named in the report of the Houston Astros major sign-stealing scandal that ultimately resulted in Cora losing his job.
After the Astros won the World Series in 2017, Cora would go to the Red Sox and they would win the title in 2018.
Red Sox players are accused of illegally using the team’s video replay room in 2018 to try to steal opposing teams’ sign sequences. Three sources said they saw players visiting the video room for that purpose during the regular season.
Boston won a franchise-record 108 games during the regular season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
