Ex-New York Mets GM Jared Porter banned though at least 2022 for inappropriate conduct

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that former New York Mets general manager Jared Porter has been placed on the ineligible list through at least the end of the 2022 season.

“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,” commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.

Porter will be eligible to apply for reinstatement after the 2022 season, MLB said.

The Mets fired Porter in January, just more than a month after they hired him as general manager, for sending sexually explicit, uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 when he was working for the Chicago Cubs in their front office.
