Major League Baseball bust the door wide open when they finished their investigation into the Houston Astros elaborate sign-stealing scheme during the 2017 season, and while no players got suspended, it did name others involved that led to another investigation into the Boston Red Sox.
“We are done with the investigation,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said March 26 on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt. “There has been a delay in terms of producing a written report just because I, frankly, 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 will make that public like they did with the Astros report, but there are a bunch of other notes being kept from both investigations that will not be made public.
Daily fantasy contestants, who have filed lawsuits against the Red Sox, Astros and MLB because electronic sign stealing affected the results of their contest, are fighting to get those notes in court, according to a report from The Athletic’s Evan Drellich.
However, Major League Baseball is fighting back and doesn’t want those released, with Drellich reporting that they don’t want “MLB’s business structures and its relationship with DraftKings” used in court.
Per The Athletic, “MLB’s lead investigator, Bryan Seeley, argued in a court filing Monday that if the league must reveal greater detail from its interviews and findings, future investigations could be jeopardized.”
The Red Sox reportedly are already aware of MLB’s findings in their investigation and disagree with them.
