MLB puts Roberto Alomar on ineligible list after reviewing sexual misconduct allegation

Major League Baseball is placing Roberto Alomar on its ineligible list after reviewing an allegation of sexual misconduct against the Hall of Fame second baseman, according to multiple industry sources.

Alomar’s contract as a consultant to MLB in Puerto Rico was terminated, as anyone on the ineligible list is banned from working in the league office or for any team in the majors or affiliated minors. He also served on commissioner Rob Manfred’s competition committee and worked for the Toronto Blue Jays as a special assistant, but that position was restructured as part of wider cost-cutting moves last September.

The discipline comes after an external law firm hired by MLB investigated the allegation and presented its findings to commissioner Rob Manfred, who determined a violation of league policies occurred.

MLB updates harassment policy after Jared Porter, Mickey Callaway allegations

As first reported by The Athletic and confirmed by an industry source, the revised code of conduct outlines specific repercussions — “a warning, a suspension, termination of employment, or any other measures available to a Club or the Commissioner” — for those who behave “contrary to MLB’s Principles.” This language will be detailed on a flier to be posted in every team’s clubhouse. The MLB Players Association has signed off on this significant modification.

In addition to more specific consequences for rule-breakers, MLB will provide an anonymous hotline, run by a third party, where incidents of harassment can be reported. Moreover, team executives will undergo “anti-harassment and discrimination training” during spring training.
