Carlos Beltran, implicated in Astros cheating scandal, stepping down as Mets manager

Carlos Beltran, implicated in Astros cheating scandal, stepping down as Mets manager

"We met with Carlos last night and again this morning and agreed to mutually part ways".

Until that report, none of those suspicions made it back to Van Wagenen, he said.

And beyond that, the Mets might be the third-most attractive managerial vacancy right now behind the Astros and Red Sox.

Beltran is the only player named in MLB's investigation of the Houston Astros. We are confident that this will not be the final chapter in his baseball career. "I wish the entire organization success in the future".

Last week, the league announced its inquiry had come to a close, and on Monday, it released a report outlining all of the evidence it used on its way to suspending Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch for a year based on their involvement.

Former Mets catcher, Mike Piazza was among the many figures in baseball this week to answer questions about the sports story of the year: electronic sign-stealing. "As a veteran player on the team, I should've recognized the severity of the issue and truly regret the actions that were taken".

If Tesla's stock prices and market capitalisation value is anything to go by then Tesla and its CEO have never had this good. Tesla's "adjusted" EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation, which in the first nine months of 2019 reached $617 million .


"I'm very sorry. It's not who I am as a father, a husband, a teammate and as an educator. I hope that at some point in time, I'll have the opportunity to return to this game that I love so much".

Beltran becomes the third Major League Baseball manager to lose his job over the Houston Astros' illegal sign-stealing scandal.

No players were disciplined, but the nine-page report said Beltrán was among the group involved in the team's illicit use of electronics to pilfer signs during Houston's run to the 2017 World Series championship.

Beltrán was hired as Mets manager in November, replacing the fired Mickey Callaway. The league is also investigating allegations of sign stealing by Cora's 2018 World Series champion Red Sox. Seven of those seasons came with the Mets.

Mets officials have been discussing Beltran's status moving forward, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, who adds that the team intends to announce a decision regarding Beltran's future before his scheduled appearance at Mets Fanfest on January 25. ESPN reported that he was out.
