Rays to return home following Irma to play Red Sox, Cubs

Are The Red Sox Making The Right Call By Putting David Price In The Bullpen

While Manfred did not specify the amount of the fine. he did say the cash would go towards Hurricane Irma relief in Florida. "Rather, the violation occurred because the dugout phone technically can not be used for such a communication", Manfred said in a statement.

"It just shows the never-quit, never-lay-down attitude", said Red Sox ace Chris Sale, who gave up four runs in 5⅔ innings in another rocky late-season start that would have been the primary story if not for the comeback and the wildness that ensued.

"The Red Sox' strategy violated our rules because of the use of an electronic device", Manfred said in the statement.

The Rays said Wednesday they will host the Red Sox as scheduled in a three-game set starting Friday, then the Cubs beginning Tuesday. "The topic's been discussed internally and addressed, and I'm sure it will not happen again".

Investigators for Major League Baseball determined that the Red Sox executed a scheme to illicitly steal hand signals from the Yankees' catchers.

The Red Sox brought forward allegations claiming that the Yankees had made improper use of YES Network in an attempt to decipher Boston's signs.

In further review, Manfred said the Yankees were found using their dugout phone illegally in a "prior championship season" and were thus fined a lesser undisclosed amount for their actions.

Manfred said he notified all 30 clubs that future violations would result in more serious sanctions, such as the loss of draft picks.

The league commissioner said "the substance of the communications that took place on the dugout phone was not a violation of any rule or regulation in and of itself", but there was a violation because "the dugout phone technically can not be used for such a communication". "I think it's exciting. It's great for baseball".

The Rays (72-75) have flirted with.500 baseball all year long - and with that, lingering contention for the last of two American League wild-card spots - but losing five of seven games has left them 5 1/2 games behind the Minnesota Twins for the second spot with 15 games to play. Cleveland entered Friday's game against the Royals on a 22-game win streak, an American League record that has become the biggest story in sports.

"We've gone back and forth, back and forth", manager Kevin Cash told the Tampa Bay Times.
