Baseball News:

The St. Louis Cardinals have been ordered by Major League Baseball to pay Houston $2 million dollars and give the Astros two picks in this year’s draft for an employee hacking the Astros. Commissioner Rob Manfred also banned former St. Louis scouting executive Christopher Correa for life.

Correa pleaded guilty to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer from 2013 to at least 2014 and last July was sentenced by a federal judge to 46 months in prison and ordered to pay the Astros $279,038.65 in restitution.
