The MLB will strip the Boston Red Sox of a second-round draft pick over the team’s 2018 sign-stealing incident. They also suspended video replay system operator J.T. Watkins without pay for the 2020 season. Meanwhile, ex-Red Sox manager Alex Cora was suspended for 2020, but that was due to his role in Houston’s sign-stealing scandal in 2017. The MLB did conclude that the Sox’s bad behavior in 2018 was less egregious than the Astros in 2017.
