Exrelevista De Azulejos Sues Astros For Signal Theft

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Pitcher Mike Bolsinger sued the Houston Astros on Monday, stating that his trick to steal signals impacted his poor performance as a reliever in August 2017, which eventually ended his career in the Great Leagues: The lawsuit of Bolsinger in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County requires an unspecified compensation for a trap that interfered with the pitcher’s career and damaged it. In addition, the complainant requests that the Astros give up a figure of almost $ 30 million in share of the postseason income for having obtained the title of the 2017 World Series. According to the lawsuit, that money should be given to charitable organizations for the children in Los Angeles and a retired baseball fund. Bolinger recalled in the lawsuit that on August 4, 2017 he was a reliever of the Toronto Blue Jays, and climbed the mound for a meeting in Houston. He allowed four runs and four hits, giving away three tickets in a third of inning, and the Astros won 16-7. According to the lawsuit, the right was dropped by the club immediately, and “never returned to baseball from Major League. ”Bolsinger was downgraded to Triple A and has not pitched since then in the majors. He had a 0-3 record and a 6.31 ERA in 11 appearances with Toronto in 2017. The 32-year-old pitcher played in Japan in 2018 and 2019. He seeks to place himself with a major league club for the next campaign. They responded immediately to a request for statements on the demand. Senior Commissioner Rob Manfred determined that the Astros violated the rules prohibiting the use of electronic means to steal signals in 2017, even during the postseason. Manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were dismissed last month. The Major League investigation concluded that the Astros used a video system to steal signals from opposing teams. Through blows in a trash can, players in the cave warned the batter what kind of pitch he would make. Bolinger also pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers during his four-year career. He accumulated a record of 8-17 and an effectiveness of 4.92.
