Alex Bregman did not have much to say about the Houston Astros' cheating scandal at the team's Fan Fest on Saturday. He desired to make one detail clear, however.
The third baseman was adamant the Astros did not wear wear a buzzer or wearable devices during the 2019 season, despite accusations made by MLB players on social media, most notably Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer.
Other than that though, Bregman was mostly mum, consistently referencing commissioner Rob Manfred's report – which ultimately led owner Jim Crane to fire general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch.
"The commissioner came out with a report, MLB did their report and the Astros did what they did," Bregman told repoerters. "They made their decision on what they’re going to do."

When a Twitter account, claiming to be fired Mets manager Carlos Beltrán's niece, alleged Astros players wore devices that buzzed to signal the incoming pitches, Bauer claimed "I've heard this from multiple parties too, for what it's worth… ."
Cleveland pitcher Mike Clevinger said in a video posted to social media that the Astros "they should feel ashamed."
"I don’t think any of those mother (expletive) should be able to look us in the eye," Clevinger said.
