Major league baseball has indicated that it has completed its investigation into the Boston Red Sox. The results of the investigation are expected to be released along with any consequences or sanctions, if any, before the start of the regular schedule.
Pending the date of the first official pitch of the season, Commissioner Rob Manfred has agreed to confirm the news to ESPN.
“We’re done with the investigation. There was a delay because I just didn’t have time to deal with it. There will be a summary of the situation in Boston before the game resumes,” he said.
The League launched the investigation shortly after an article in The Athletic revealed that the Houston Astros used a camera system to steal signals from opposing pitchers and give them to their batters.
In the wake of this announcement, Red Sox manager Alex Cora was fired from his position as the manager who worked with the Astros when this method was used in 2017.
Cora was replaced by Sox bench coach Ron Roenicke.
