Astros GM Luhnow Releases Statement After Suspension

League Championship Series - Boston Red Sox v Houston Astros - Game Four

The now-former Houston Astros general manager is insisting he's not a cheater after getting suspended for one year by Major League Baseball. Jeff Luhnow released a statement after receiving the punishment over a sign-stealing scandal. He said he accepts responsibility for rules violations that happened during his watch, but noted he wasn't "engaged in any misconduct" and didn't "know rules were being broken." Luhnow was fired shortly after his punishment was announced, along with team manager A.J. Hinch. 

Fired Astros manager A.J. Hinch issued an apology in a statement for failing to do more to stop the technology sign-stealing.  Hinch said he regrets being connected to these events.
