Red Sox dismiss Alex Cora




 

Alex Cora has been fired by the Red Sox, the club announced in a statement released on Tuesday evening. The statement, on behalf of principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner, and CEO Sam Kennedy, reads:

Cora also released a statement through the club:

Major League Baseball released a report based upon its investigation into allegations of sign-stealing via the use of technology when Cora was a bench coach for the Astros. Cora is essentially painted as the mastermind of the whole scheme and is currently still under investigation by the league for similar allegations as manager of the Red Sox in 2018, when the club won the World Series.

MLB suspended Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch each for one year. They were later dismissed by the club. Cora is looking at a similar, if not bigger punishment from the league. His dismissal from the Red Sox is anything but a surprise.
