WASHINGTON — MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said that the league office would continue conversations with the Houston Astros regarding the incident last weekend that resulted in the termination of a member of the team’s front office.

Speaking before Game 3 of the World Series after a photo session with Cleveland Indians Jerseys China pitcher Carlos Carrasco Jersey China, this season’s recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award, Manfred declined to characterize the nature of those conversations.

“I will say that there are a variety of issues,” Manfred said. “I’m not going to narrow the statement. We’re going to continue to review the situation, have conversations with [Astros owner Jim] Crane. It’s one thing to comment and investigate for 24 hours on a specific incident.”

Inside the Astros culture that bred Brandon Taubman’s comments

Admitting ‘we were wrong,’ Astros fire asst. GM
The incident in question came to light after a report was published earlier this week by Sports Illustrated’s Stephanie Apstein. According to the report, during the celebration in the Astros clubhouse after Houston clinched the American League Championship Series on Saturday, assistant general manager Brandon Taubman turned to a group of female reporters — including one wearing a purple domestic violence awareness bracelet — and repeatedly yelled, “Thank God we got [Roberto] Osuna! I’m so f—ing glad we got Osuna!”

Last season, Osuna served a 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy, stemming from an incident while he was a member of the Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys China.

The Astros initially called the report “misleading and completely irresponsible” and accused SI of trying to “fabricate a story where one does not exist.” Taubman later apologized for his language but said his comments were misinterpreted. After a league investigation into the allegations outlined in the report was completed, the Astros announced on Thursday that Taubman’s employment with the team had been terminated.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow met Friday with Apstein, who requested a retraction of the team’s initial statement. Luhnow acknowledged the request but had not yet issued a retraction.

Manfred declined to say whether more disciplinary actions might follow.

“I didn’t say that there is going to be further action, but there are things we want to talk to the Astros about, continuing to have those conversations and gather information,” Manfred said. “I think it was important that they recognize that they had made a mistake. They issued an apology and they dealt with the individual situation in a decisive way, and those are all positives.”

Manfred said the league would continue its inquiry into the incident and its fallout after the World Series concludes. The Washington Nationals lead the series 2-0 entering Game 3 at Nationals Park on Friday night. Manfred added that the league would address the matter publicly when the conversations he referenced are finished and any further decisions related to the matter are made.

Manfred emphasized that there was no timeline on the next phase of the inquiry, or even what the scope of the inquiry might be.

“I think we’ve had pretty good record of transparency when we make decisions,” Manfred said. “So I think when we get to the point when we have something more to say, it’ll be public. Again, I don’t want the expectation that this piece of it is going to be as quick as the last piece, because there is more to it.”

HOUSTON — Major League Baseball and its players’ union are optimistic that talks are progressing on testing for opioids following the death of Los Angeles Angels Jerseys China pitcher Tyler Skaggs.

“The dialogue in this has been really positive with the players association, a lot of common ground on addressing the issue,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said Wednesday before Game 2 of the World Series. “We understand that our workforce is a microcosm of society. There’s a societal problem.”

Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room on July 1 before the start of a series against the Texas Rangers Jerseys China. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said the 27-year-old died after choking on his vomit with a toxic mix of alcohol and the painkillers fentanyl and oxycodone in his body.

Although the joint program of MLB and the players’ association has testing with penalties for performance-enhancing drugs and banned stimulants, opioids are included in drugs of abuse and not subject to testing with penalties for players on 40-man rosters.

Players with minor league contracts are subject to testing with discipline for opioids.

“Tyler hit home for a number of guys that knew him and a number of guys that didn’t,” union head Tony Clark said. “Whether the players know of another player, they may know somebody in the family that’s struggling with it. So it still hits close to home.”

The joint drug agreement has a provision calling for annual updating.

HOUSTON — George Springer set a record in Game 1 with a home run in his fifth consecutive World Series Jerseys China game, but in the wake of the Houston Astros Jerseys China‘ 5-4 loss to the Washington Nationals Jerseys China, his failure to sprint out of the batter’s box in the eighth inning became a hot topic.

With the Astros down 5-3 and Kyle Tucker on second base with one out, Springer launched a long fly ball into the right-center-field corner. Springer initially watched the ball and then hopped six or seven times on his way down the first-base line. He didn’t run hard until he reached first base.

Nationals right fielder Adam Eaton made a leaping attempt at the ball, but it bounced off the heel of his glove and was retrieved by center fielder Victor Robles.

Tucker, who went back to second base to tag up, scored on the play, but Springer had a double instead of a potential triple. The next batter, Jose Altuve, flew out to right field, and Springer might have scored if he had been on third base. Instead, he was left stranded when Michael Brantley then lined out to left field.

In the initial aftermath of the game, Springer said he couldn’t have made third base on the play even if he had run hard.

“I was watching [Eaton] the whole time,” Springer said. “That’s one of those things where I don’t want to necessarily run as fast as I can because for some reason, if [Tucker] tags or whatever the case and I run by him, it’s not good. So I was just kind of watching the outfielder.”

He added that he wasn’t kicking himself for not making it to third.

“I can’t go to third right there because the guy on second had gone back to tag,” he said. “If I had gone to third, I’m out.”

Before Game 2, however, Astros manager AJ Hinch said Springer called him later to talk about the play, surprised that it had become a focal point of discussion and wanting Hinch’s reaction.

“I felt like it was an honest mistake,” Hinch said, adding that he wasn’t going to dwell on it.

“I know how hard he plays,” Hinch said of Springer. “I know he leaves it all out on the field. I talked to him late last night on the phone. He called me. He initiated the conversation. We followed up today with a personal meeting and walked through the different scenarios. I’m not sure if the play ends any differently, but everybody understands the look when it’s a late entry into a play like that.”

Still, Hinch admitted that it wasn’t the best of baserunning plays.

“I think George got caught up in the moment of the play, in the anxiousness to see if the ball was leaving,” he said. “It wasn’t an egregious showmanship kind of pimp job, as they call it. It was a delay in reading the play correctly to where once he started running, he ran into Tucker, who was coming back to tag up because Eaton looked like he was camped underneath the ball.”
