New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge has deleted an Instagram post from 2017 in which he congratulated Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve for winning the American League MVP Award.

According to Michael Blinn of the New York Post, Judge's post read: "M-V-P! Nobody more deserving than you!! Congrats on an unforgettable 2017!! @josealtuve27."

Judge apparently deleted the post after Major League Baseball suspended Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch one year each for their role in the Astros stealing signs electronically during the 2017 regular season and playoffs and 2018 regular season.
