MLB’s sign-stealing probe will go beyond 2017 Astros, include Red Sox

MLB wants to know if teams beyond the 2017 Astros illegally stole signs.

The league’s probe will also explore whether cheating occurred in at least the last three World Series, and it will examine whether the 2019 Astros and other teams electronically stole signs in an attempt to give hitters an advantage, according to ESPN. The league has reached out to members of the Astros and Red Sox organizations, per the report.

Former Astros pitcher Mike Fiers and several anonymous sources told The Athletic this week that the 2017 Astros used a center-field camera to steal signs.

MLB could issue lengthy suspensions if it finds anyone it interviews lies, ESPN reports. The league has already spoken Craig Bjornson, the former Astros bullpen coach who joined Alex Cora’s Red Sox staff in 2018. The Athletic reported MLB would interview Cora, new Mets manager Carlos Beltran and Astros manager AJ Hinch, and that Beltran and Cora had a role in the sign-stealing system.

Brandon Taubman, the former Astros assistant general manager who was fired during the playoffs for inappropriate conduct, is also expected to be interviewed by MLB.

On Tuesday, Beltran told The Post’s Joel Sherman, “I’m not aware of that camera. We were studying the opposite team every day.”
