Report: MLB suspends Astros manager A.J. Hinch, GM Jeff Luhnow one year

Astros suspended sign stealing

Major League Baseball reportedly handed down its punishment to the Houston Astros after allegations of sign-stealing during their World Series season of 2017.

It’s no small punishment. Manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow have both been suspended for a calendar year.

Jeff Passan of ESPN also noted that the Astros have been fined $5 million and will be stripped of their first-round pick and second-round pick in each of the next two MLB Drafts.

There’s obviously going to be a lot more coming out of this. But MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and Co. came down hard on the Astros.
