Commissioner Rob Manfred dropped the hammer on the Astros on Monday.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were each suspended for a full season for their role in a sign-stealing scandal, MLB announced. The Astros also lost first- and second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021. The team was fined $5 million.
The Astros were said to be using a video system to let batters know what pitch was coming next.
