Porter placed on Ineligible List

Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced today that Jared Porter has been placed on the Ineligible List following the completion of Major League Baseball’s investigation.

 

Commissioner Manfred issued the following statement regarding the discipline: “My office has completed its investigation into alleged inappropriate conduct by Jared Porter. Having reviewed all of the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Porter violated MLB’s policies, and that placement on the Ineligible List is warranted. We are committed to providing an appropriate work environment consistent with our values for all those involved in our game.”

 

Placement on the Ineligible List is immediate and will continue until, at minimum, the end of the 2022 Championship Season, when Mr. Porter will be eligible to apply for reinstatement.
