Red Sox owner John Henry accepts Major League Baseball report and punishment

On Wednesday Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich of The Athletic reported the penalties that Boston was getting hit with.

As a result of the findings, the punishments will be very light for the Red Sox organization. This isn't exactly a hash punishment from Major League Baseball as the suspension of Cora was already expected due to his involvement in the Astros incident.

Former Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who mutually parted ways with the team in January as part of the fallout from the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal, also was suspended through the 2020 playoffs, but only for his conduct as the Astros' bench coach in 2017.

The report went to some lengths to identify efforts by the front office (including current GM Brian O'Halloran) to ensure compliance with Major League Baseball prohibitions on the use of live video feeds for such purposes, and said that neither manager Alex Cora nor members of the coaching staff had been involved in efforts to gain an edge from live video feeds.

However the league investigation found there was no evidence the conduct continued during the 2018 postseason or 2019 regular season.

The bottom line: With everyone's attention on coronavirus, MLB was glad to have the Astros scandal mostly in the rearview, but the shadow of an unfinished investigation into the Red Sox still hung over the league.

The Boston Red Sox are removing the interim tag from Ron Roenicke's manager title, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney on Wednesday. He has also been banned from operating the team's video replay through 2021.

Despite the report's finding of wrongdoing by the Red Sox, Henry expressed his hope that the organization's reputation would not be tainted. The report named the team's video system operator as the primary person on which the blame will be placed, much to the chagrin of Dodgers fans. But would the Red Sox consider pivoting back to Cora when his suspension expires? "MLB's investigation concluded that in isolated instances during the 2018 regular season, sign sequences were decoded through the use of live game video rather than through permissible means". The loss of the pick drops the Red Sox's available bonus pool in a five-round draft from $6,514,300 to $5,111,100.

A former minor league catcher in the Red Sox's system, he was previously involved in the "Apple Watch Incident" in 2017.

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy and general manager Brian O'Halloran said on a conference call with reporters that the club would take no further action against Watkins beyond the punishment issued by the Commissioner.
