Dominican Republic investigation launched “unlikely to return this season”
Tampa Bay Rays infielder Wander Franco.
Wander Franco, 22, of the Tampa Bay Rays, has been placed on indefinite administrative leave by Major League Baseball’s (MLB) 온라인카지노 Office of the Commissioner following an investigation by the Dominican Republic’s Department of Justice into allegations that he had an improper relationship with a minor.
“Franco will not be allowed to participate in games or workouts during the suspension,” the Associated Press reported on Wednesday, “but he will receive his salary and service time (roster spots) as normal.”
An administrative leave of absence does not constitute formal discipline. However, the AP notes that “it’s unlikely Franco, who has been suspended indefinitely, will return this season.”

The MLB Office of the Commissioner has placed him on indefinite administrative leave due to the length of the investigation.
His team, Tampa Bay, has not commented.
“I don’t want to comment,” Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said on Wednesday when asked by local media, “we’ll see.”

He signed a 12-year, $203 million contract with Tampa Bay in 2021, 카지노사이트 and this season he hit .281 with 17 home runs and 58 RBIs in 112 games.
