In the most dramatic ruling of his five-year tenure, baseball commissioner Rob Manfred came down hard on the Astros Monday for illegally stealing signs during their World Series championship season in 2017. The penalties, according to sources with knowledge of Manfred’s decision, include:

  • a one-year suspension for general manager Jeff Luhnow.
  • A one-year suspension for manager A.J. Hinch
  • The forfeitures of first- and second-round draft picks in both 2020 and ’21.
  • A fine of $5 million, the maximum allowed under MLB’s constitution.

After the penalty was announced, general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch were fired by owner Jim Crane.

Tonight the Dallas Stars finish their road trip in Colorado while the Mavericks begin a road trip at Golden State.
