Report: Former Cardinals Executive to Plead Guilty in Connection with Hacking Scandal

MLB News and Rumors

cardinals sad injuryWe’ve been waiting for quite some time for an update to the St. Louis Cardinals hacking scandal, which, at last check had seen Scouting Director Chris Correa dumped by the Cardinals for his involvement. The FBI was investigating, and MLB was deferring to the feds before imposing any penalties of its own. That was all last year, and there wasn’t much in the way of updates. It seemed fairly likely that Correa was going to be cast as a lone gunman, and the Cardinals, institutionally, had no involvement in – nor knowledge of – the hacking.

That still might be the case, as Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal reports that Correa is going to be indicted today, and has already agreed to plead guilty to a number of charges tied to the hacking.

I’m presuming there will be more on this throughout the day/weekend.
