Astros: Jeff Luhnow and AJ Hinch suspensions among punishments

The MLB investigation is complete and Rob Manfred has made a strong statement to the baseball world. Teams will pay dearly for electronically stealing signs, as shown by the penalties handed out to Luhnow, Hinch, and the Astros for their 2017 cheating accusations.

Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch have been suspended for the 2020 season. The suspensions take place beginning today and will run through to the day following the last game of the 2020 World Series. No players will be suspended.

On top of the suspensions, the Astros will lose their first and second-round draft picks for the 2020 and 2021 drafts.
