Mets’ Carlos Beltran named in MLB report but will not be suspended as part of Astros’ sign-stealing scandal

MLB came down hard on the now-fired duo of Astros manager A.J. Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow on Monday, suspending both of them for one season as part of their involvement in Houston’s sign-stealing scandal.

Despite being named in MLB’s report, Mets manager Carlos Beltran — who was a player with the Astros in 2017 when their scheme was ongoing — will not be suspended.

Beltran lucky he was player, not coach during scandal

SNY’s Andy Martino reported on Jan. 7 that as Major League Baseball entered the final stages of its investigation, “all indications” were that Beltran would not be suspended.
