Red Sox Fined for Sign-Stealing Violation

Boston Red Sox Doug Fister

The New York Times first reported earlier this month that the Yankees accused the Red Sox of using an Apple Watch to steal signs during a three-game series in August, and that the Boston team admitted their trainers received signals from video replay personnel and then relayed that information to players.

The Boston Red Sox will try to inch closer to an American League East title when they send 2016 AL Cy Young victor Rick Porcello to the mound on Saturday in the middle of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

"You start to look at the numbers as they are and the things that we have to go by, and maybe sometimes people don't put a lot of weight in wins, losses and ERA but they're meaningful and he starts to put himself in a very small group around the American League", Farrell said after Pomeranz went six solid innings to win his 16th game.

Boston is 9-7 against Tampa Bay this year with three games remaining in the season series.

It paid off in the 15th inning Friday night when the Boston shortstop contributed two hits in a seven-run inning that lifted the Red Sox to a 13-6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.


Ryon Healy hit his 25th home run of the season, but after taking a one-run lead into the bottom of the fifth inning, the wheels came off and the Red Sox scored one in the fifth, two in the sixth and three in the seventh inning.

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said he was relieved the probe had ended. "We want to remind everyone that just as baseball is fundamental to American culture and history, so, too, is racism". For the season against Boston, he is 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA. "I think we've been pretty energized since our younger guys have gotten here", Oakland manager Bob Melvin said after his team downed the Red Sox 7-3 on Wednesday night. Bogaerts followed with a single, and Dustin Pedroia hit a ground ball that was misplayed by second baseman Brad Miller, allowing Bradley to score the lead run.

Watchgate has resulted in fines for both the Red Sox and Yankees. He couldn't find the cutter.

Red Sox starter Chris Sale gave up four runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Manfred said recently at Fenway Park that he wanted to make sure his punishment would be a deterrent for teams thinking about taking illegal measures to steal signs.
