Astros employee accused of spying on the Red Sox

Astros employee accused of spying on the Red Sox

One report identified the alleged spy as Kyle McLaughlin (left).

Major League Baseball also says it is aware of a report by Metro Boston that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during the AL Championship Series opener at Fenway Park.

It very much could be another game swung by the bullpens, a formula that, despite the narrative entering this series, resulted in an 8-2 loss for the Astros in Game 3 on Tuesday night. The Red Sox said: "It is an Major League Baseball matter, so no one from the Red Sox would be commenting".

Bradley hit a three-run double during Boston's Game 2 victory, giving him three RBI in consecutive games for the first time in his career. McLaughlin was removed by security in Cleveland and Boston, according to the report.

In this era of baseball we see more homers, strikeouts and paranoia than ever. It's allowed, as long as teams only use their eyes. The man was not allowed back into the credentialed area, but was allowed to remain in the ballpark. The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently.

Penny Mordaunt, the global development secretary, added "everyone needs to calm down". This is the rhetoric ahead of Wednesday's summit.

During the Astros' series-clinching win on October 8 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a man with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit was removed "several times" by security personnel, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

MLB Chief Communications Officer Pat Courtney acknowledged Saturday night's incident in an email on Tuesday afternoon, saying, "We are aware of the matter and it will be handled internally".

Additionally, NBC Sports Boston's Evan Drellich reported that a similar incident in which the Astros attempted to gain information on their opponent occurred when they faced the Indians during the ALDS.

According to ESPN, the Astros were using the man to monitor the Red Sox and make sure they weren't doing anything outside the rules.

There was no indication of any suspicious activity during Game 3 in Houston on Tuesday night, but the Red Sox were careful to change their pitch-calling signs throughout the night - something Manager Alex Cora said is fairly standard for the Red Sox.
