Major League Baseball reviewed report of Astros possibly cheating

Houston Astros Employee Accused Of Suspicious Activity During Game 1 vs. Red Sox

A separate report from Yahoo Sports identified the man as Kyle McLaughlin and says he aimed a cell phone into the Indians' dugout during their Game 3 loss to the Astros in the AL Division Series.

Without Sale, the Red Sox have 1o pitchers to turn to on their 25-man roster.

After the man was removed another Astros staffer intervened - according to sources who were on the scene - and tried to convince security that he was authorized to be in the area next to the dugout. Major League Baseball has instructed all clubs still in the playoffs "to refrain from these types of efforts".

Sherman reported that the man involved in the incident was an Astros employee, but additionally reported that he had been monitoring the dugout to see if Boston was improperly using a video monitor. Catchers have always communicated with pitchers using hand signals, and anyone steal those signs could alert the hitter as to what kind of pitch to expect. Luhnow said the club will abide by MLB's guidelines and that any prior monitoring was done as protection.

Cora said the situation is something for Major League Baseball to handle. Astros manager AJ Hinch said he was also aware of the report.

A man claiming to be an Astros employee was reportedly removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout.

Neither the Red Sox or Indians would comment on the matter, but an Astros representative did not deny wrongdoing in several e-mails to Metro. "If we feel there's something going on we switch the signs". He was then removed from the media-credentialed area.

Following Game 3, Indians starter Mike Clevinger alluded to the Astros having an advantage.

There have been previous suspicions about the Astros. Perhaps it takes one to know one.

"A lot of stuff".

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. "A lot of things", Clevinger said when asked what happened. "I'm going to keep it really short".

It's extremely hard to tell if the ball nipped a section of the wall before Kemp caught it or if Kemp's glove pushed the padding a little bit before the ball came down. "But everybody was out there giving it their all, they just had some really good arms to back it up". "We consider the matter closed".
