It’s official, another MLB Manager has stepped down amid the sign-stealing scandal that has made waves throughout the league over the past week.
First, it was Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch and General Manager Jeff Luhnow, then is was Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora. Now, Carlos Beltran has stepped down from his manager position with the New York Mets.
So far through this scandal, only managers and front office officials involved with the scandal in Houston have met repercussions. But, while Beltran is a manager with the Mets now – well he was – he was a player for the Astros in 2017 and probably played a part in the sign-stealing system that was put into place.
Rumors have been flying around about what would happen with Beltran since no players have been punished, but both the organization and Beltran thought it was best to part ways.
The future was starting to look bright in New York for the blue, orange and white, but another unfortunate act has left them without a manager as spring training approaches.
One thing is for certain though.
