Blue Jays’ Hudgens appears safe as fallout from Astros scandal widens

No player received any discipline from Major League Baseball for the sign-stealing scheme, but Beltran was the only one to be named.

Carlos Beltran is out as New York Mets manager due to his involvement with the sign-stealing scandal involving the Houston Astros.

Luhnow and Hinch were subsequently fired while Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the former Astros' bench coach described as a ringleader of the sign-stealing plot in MLB's report, parted with the club Wednesday. So weird and wild.

Beltran was part of a group of players that Cora helped illegally decode other team's catcher signs and transmit pitch types to them in real time, according to a report from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.

"I couldn't let myself be a distraction for the team". "This was not an easy decision".

"It became clear to all parties that it was not in anyone's best interest for Carlos to move forward as manager", they added in a statement.

"We believe that Carlos was honest and forthcoming with us and we are confident that this will not be the final chapter in his baseball career". "I wish the entire organization success in the future".

"When this came up today, Jose Altuve immediately contacted me and this is his statement: 'I have never worn an electronic device in my performance as a major league player, '" Boras told Joel Sherman of the New York Post. "We remain excited about the talent on this team and are committed to reaching our goals of winning now and in the future".

The Mets announced the decision Thursday in a news release, saying Beltrán and the team "agreed to mutually part ways".

"A new picture floated around on Twitter right after the reports from the Beltran ghost account, with images showing Astros" outfielder Josh Reddick wearing just an undershirt, and having some sort of wire on his shoulder with a piece of tape securing it to his skin.

The 42-year-old was the only player named in MLB's investigation. ESPN reported that he was out.
