As MLB investigators intensify their probe into allegations of high-tech cheating against the Yankees, Mets and other clubs, a key element of their process will be comparing the accounts of interviewees, and searching for inconsistencies in the various testimonies, according to people familiar with the investigation.
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.
However, if the accounts offered by Beltran, Cora or any other witness contain inconsistencies or falsehoods, they and any other witness could end up facing harsher discipline.
