Major League Baseball clears Astros of sign stealing: ‘We consider the matter closed’

Yahoo Sports identified the man filming the Red Sox dugout as Kyle McLaughlin, whom Luhnow described as an intern. "So we do a good job of changing sequences and paying attention to details". We feel like it's a value-added thing for us to do. To address those worries, the commissioner instituted a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, beefing up Major League Baseball security at games and monitoring video rooms.

The Houston Astros on Wednesday acknowledged a longstanding practice of having a team employee surveil the opposing team's dugout during road games, but said the goal was merely to ensure that they.

Jose Altuve's ailing knee prompted manager A.J. Hinch to use Altuve as his DH in Game 3, shifting the versatile Marwin Gonzalez - who most frequently starts in left field - to second base and Kemp into the lineup.

A man wearing a Houston Astros media credential was removed from the camera bay of American League Division Series Game 3 against the Cleveland Indians, Andy Baskin of 92.3 the Fan reported Tuesday.

The second person tried to gain access to the field photographer's pit but was turned away, said the people who spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

This isn't the first time the Astros have been suspected of cheating. He was then removed from the media-credentialed area. Asked if he's concerned about signs being stolen, he said, "I'm always concerned about that throughout the season".

Earlier this season, Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer intimated on Twitter that Houston's pitchers may have been using banned substances to improve the spin on their pitches. The concerns expressed related to a number of Clubs, not any one specific Club. Thus, the investigation is over and the case is closed. The Red Sox have taken the series lead against the Houston Astros.

The Boston Red Sox center fielder roped a go-ahead, three-RBI double in the third inning of Game 2 against the Houston Astros followed by a grand slam in the eighth inning of Game 3. "We consider the matter closed". Teams regularly change their signs during games, and the surge in mound visits in recent years was believed to be largely attributable to the effort to prevent sign-stealing, and led Major League Baseball to institute a limit on mound visits this season.
