MLB punishes ex-Mets GM Jared Porter for sexting scandal

Major League Baseball announced its punishment Wednesday for former New York Mets general manager Jared Porter.

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.

The Mets fired Porter in January after ESPN reported he “sent explicit, unsolicited texts and images to a female reporter in 2016, culminating with a picture of an erect, naked penis, according to a copy of the text history obtained by ESPN.”

According to the report, Porter’s text relationship with the reporter began when he was the director of professional scouting for the Chicago Cubs.

The Mets had hired the 41-year-old Porter in December, one month after owner Steve Cohen completed his deal to buy the club.

Last month, MLB placed former Mets manager Mickey Callaway on the Ineligible List through the end of 2022. That came after an investigation following a report from The Athletic, in which five women in sports media accused Callaway of making frequent and unwanted sexual advances.
