Major League Baseball reviewed report of Astros possibly cheating

The man's credential was requested by Houston, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

A report published Tuesday by a Boston newspaper accused the Houston Astros of trying to steal signs during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. There was an Major League Baseball investigation, but the resolution is unclear. It was believed he was there to steal signs from the Boston dugout.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game.

Major League Baseball has closed its investigation into cheating allegations against the Astros in the American League Division Series with the Indians.

Game 4 of the ALCS between the Red Sox and Astros is set for Wednesday night.

He stood out because he was wearing a suit jacket in a restricted area reserved for photographers, a member of the team's social media department and where TV reporters are permitted to stand, one of the sources said.

"Before the Postseason began, a number of Clubs called the Commissioner's Office about sign stealing and the inappropriate use of video equipment". Cora noted before Game 3 that the club was exploring contingency plans, with Eduardo Rodriguez in a spot start, David Price on short rest or a bullpen game all being options.

MLB's statement confirms McLaughlin, the Astros employee, was monitoring the other team's dugout to ensure they were not violating any rules. We'll see if the Red Sox have any more epic moments in store. "And I mean you're just hyper aware of it".

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. The best-of-seven series is tied 1-1. "We try to slow it down and if we feel there's something going on, we try to switch the signs".

"It's not going to help pitch tipping, but I think it will help a lot with the sign stuff".

Stealing signs has been part of baseball since the invention of the game.

All of the suspicion has added to the length of each game, as both teams' catchers have routinely walked to the mound to confer with their pitchers, usually while covering their mouths with their gloves.

However, new technology may have given teams an unfair advantage as the use of high-definition, high-speed cameras allows teams to peer where they couldn't before.

According to ESPN, the Astros were using the man to monitor the Red Sox and make sure they weren't doing anything outside the rules.
