MLB Issues Statement Clearing Astros Of Rule Violations

Bradley delivered the knockout punch to the Astros with the biggest hit of his career, making it an 8-2 lead for Boston to all but wrap up a victory in Game 3 and guaranteeing that the Red Sox can not lose this series without at least making a trip back home to Fenway Park first.

Major League Baseball confirmed in a statement it was also aware of a report by Metro Boston that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during the ALCS opener at Fenway Park. McLaughlin was removed by security in Cleveland and Boston, according to the report. Passan adds that some clubs are "wary" that Houston may utilize its Edgertronic ballpark cameras, which can record 2,000 frames per second, in sign-stealing schemes.

The Red Sox had been warned before their series-opening game to look out for the man, the AP was told by the people. If he misses this catch, the Red Sox likely lose.

Earlier Tuesday, a report by Boston Metro suggested that the Astros may have been caught cheating in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday. The incident is expected to lead to a fine for the Astros.

The Astros, major league sources tell ESPN's Buster Olney, had deployed the employee to monitor whether the Red Sox were doing anything outside the rules on their side of the field.

Asked if he thought anything untoward was going on at Fenway Park during Games 1 and 2, Cora said, "No, I don't". "I'm anxious about the game".

'Somebody mentioned (it) to me right now. But I just heard today'.

The inquiry began when the general manager of the second-place New York Yankees, Brian Cashman, filed a complaint with the commissioner's office a few weeks ago, including video from the teams' three-game series in August that allegedly depicted a member of the first-place Red Sox training staff looking at his Apple Watch and relaying messages to players, according to the New York Times.

There was no indication of any suspicious activity during Game 3 in Houston on Tuesday night, but the Red Sox were careful to change their pitch-calling signs throughout the night - something Manager Alex Cora said is fairly standard for the Red Sox.

During the early innings in Game 3, the Indians became aware that the man standing near their dugout in Progressive Field was aiming his cellphone into their dugout and taking pictures.
