"As I said December 27, the date we had the (Hyun-Jin) Ryu news conference, Dave Hudgens was a member of the Houston Astros and participated 100 per cent with the investigations (by Major League Baseball)", Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said in an interview Wednesday.

Rush said the House has an "imperative" to investigate allegations sparked by revelations that the Houston Astros during the 2017 season - when they won the World Series - used techniques to alert batters of upcoming pitches in violation of Major League Baseball rules.

Meanwhile, the scandal continues to expand in the wake of Beltran's split with the Mets, and a question now is how deep Major League Baseball, its executives and its players will dig into the countless skeletons buried in the game's closet.

In the days after one of the darker days in MLB history, the league announcing the damning findings of the Astros' high-tech sign-stealing system that has cost three managers their jobs, baseball fans and perhaps baseball players' distant families have sprung into conspiratorial mode: How else did Houston cheat?

That same account went on to state that Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman had buzzers underneath their jerseys to assist their cheating efforts.

The account also referenced Altuve's walk-off home run off New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman in Game 6 of the 2019 American League Championship Series, which put the Astros in the World Series. That simply means they can't get comments, not for support or to get ripped.

In other words, Boras claims Altuve is innocent, but other players on the Astros aren't.

According to Manfred's report, the Astros used two illegal technological methods to steal signs throughout the 2017 season and part of the 2018 season - relaying information to runners on second base after decoding signs from the video replay room; and using a live feed from a center-field camera and then banging on a trash can to signal certain pitches.
