Former Cubs Executive and Mets GM Jared Porter Placed on MLB’s Ineligible List

Chicago Cubs

Between the sticky stuff suspension (and appeal), the Trevor Bauer allegations, the Skaggs Family Lawsuit, everything going on with the Blackhawks (both amazing and horrible), and the Cubs blowing a 7-run first-inning lead in a must-win game against the Brewers while possibly also losing Patrick Wisdom in the process … my head is certifiably spinning right now. But there’s even more to discuss at the moment, as we have also reached the conclusion of MLB’s investigation into the behavior of former Cubs executive and Mets GM Jared Porter.

You can read the Commissioner’s statement in full below, but the short version is that Porter will be placed on the ineligible list through the end of next season, at which point he can apply for reinstatement, which obviously will not be guaranteed.

The Mets hired and fired Jared Porter this past offseason, when he was also in consideration to be the new Cubs GM under Jed Hoyer.

Porter joins Jenrry Mejia (PEDs), Chris Correa (Cardinals executive involved in the Astros hacking scandal), John Coppolella (Braves GM in the international free agent scandal), Brandon Taubman (inappropriate behavior towards a female reporter *and* involvement in Astros sign-stealing scandal), Roberto Alomar (inappropriate behavior towards a female reporter), and Mickey Callaway (sexual harassment) as individuals banned under Commissioner Rob Manfred.
