MLB Investigating Astros Employee For Videotaping Red Sox's Dugout

Astros employee removed may have been spying

An Astros employee may have been attempting to spy on the Red Sox according to a report from Metro BostonMore

As the Houston Astros prepare to take on Nathan Eovaldi and the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALCS at Minute Maid Park, Astros third baseman Alex Bregman posted an Instagram story showing his team hitting back-to-back-to-back homers off Eovaldi earlier this season in what appeared to take a shot at the Sox.

The man was seen to have a small camera and was texting frequently before being asked to leave, and another Astros employee intervened, saying the man was authorized to be in the area.

Security sources say they had been warned about the man, because of some suspicious activity in Houston's ALDS series against the Cleveland Indians.

The Red Sox, Indians and Astros either declined comment or said Major League Baseball was handling the matter.

The report from Metro brought back memories of a report from ESPN's Buster Olney, who said the Red Sox think the Astros are great a stealing signs and adjusted their chain of communication accordingly.

Rookie Jacob Martin was there to recover the fumble, giving Seattle yet another short field and an easy shot to add to its lead. That gives Lockett five TD receptions on the season, keeping him among the National Football League leaders in that category.

That employee, identified as Kyle McLaughlin, was removed by security in Cleveland and Boston after he was caught aiming a cell phone into the team's respective dugouts from the photographer's pit. The incident is expected to lead to a fine for the Astros. They really did just a fantastic job over there of being ready and prepared before the series. Scraping by on recycled starters and questionable relievers, he helped lead the Astros through a complex postseason to their first ever World Series championship. "I'm anxious about the game".

The Astros went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position in the first home game of the series, which was played in front of a sellout crowd of 43,102 and included Astros Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell and Houston Rockets stars James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.

Cora said he has been concerned throughout the season about Red Sox signs being stolen.

According to the report, the Yankees had long held suspicions that the rival Red Sox were stealing signals at Fenway Park, and their claims were corroborated by the league after filing the complaint.

"MLB significantly beefed up its security presence at Game 3 on Tuesday, according to a league source with knowledge of its staff, sending three people from its baseball-operations office and another six security personnel to monitor the game", Passan wrote.
