MLB has completed Boston Red Sox investigation
MLB has completed its investigation into the Boston Red Sox’s alleged cheating.
Commissioner Rob Manfred spoke with ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt for an interview on Wednesday night. During the interview, Manfred shared that the investigation has been completed. He said no written report has been produced yet because they have been focused on other more pressing matters.
“We are done with the investigation,” Manfred told Van Pelt. “There’s 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.”
An investigation into the Red Sox began after The Athletic reported in their article about the Houston Astros cheating that Boston used its replay room to illegally watch video in their 2018 World Series season. The allegations against the Red Sox were said to be far less egregious than the Astros.
A recent legal case suggested MLB found some wrongdoing by Boston, but the belief all along has been that the findings are not close to the level of what Houston was doing.
