Evidence against the Astros in regard to accusations of their sign-stealing had an e-mail tossed into the fire.
According to a new report from The Athletic, an e-mail was obtained in which an executive from the team's front office asked scouts to attempt to steal signs.
The message also suggested cameras be used to help obtain information.
"What we are looking for is how much we can see, how we would log things, if we need cameras/binoculars, etc. So go to game, see what you can [or can't] do and report back your findings," the message obtained states via the report.
As SNY reported, Mets manager Carlos Beltran and Red Sox manager Alex Cora will be interviewed but appear unlikely to be suspended.
The Athletic reported that MLB has also contacted former Astros pitcher Mike Fiers, who alleged that the Astros used cameras to steal signs in 2017.
