Trout rips Astros, calls for more punishment

Three-time AL MVP Mike Trout ripped the Astros for sign stealing and questioned the discipline handed out by Major League Baseball after he reported to spring training on Monday.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Trout was, like so many others, pretty firm on the Astros. Some reached out to apologize, but Trout said he "lost respect" for some of them and thinks they should've been punished. Did he hear banging on the trash cans at Minute Maid Park? "I didn't notice the hanging on the trash can — I noticed the banging on the bat. It just seems like they weren't missing pitches."

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke with Joc Pederson, who lost in arbitration and was headed to the Angels in a deal that ultimately fell through. Roberts said Pederson "absolutely" wants to remain a Dodger. "Joc's invested a lot of time and energy into this organization, on the field and in the community. Obviously, understanding the landscape of an organization and his job as a player, things potentially could happen. But ultimately, how it played out, he's thrilled to be with us for 2020."
