MLB Investigating Social Media Posts Involving Rays Shortstop Wander Franco

Major League Baseball is investigating social media posts involving Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco. The posts, which have since been deleted, allege that Franco was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a minor.


Franco, 21, is one of the most exciting young players in baseball. He was named the American League Rookie of the Year in 2022 and is considered a potential future Hall of Famer.

The posts first surfaced on Sunday, August 13, during the Rays’ game against the Cleveland Guardians. Franco was not in the starting lineup for the game and left the dugout in the fifth inning. He was not seen in the clubhouse after the game.

The Rays released a statement on Sunday saying that they were aware of the posts and were taking the situation seriously. “We take the situation seriously and are in close contact with Major League Baseball as it conducts its due diligence,” the statement said.

MLB has not released any further details about its investigation. However, the league has a strict policy against players engaging in inappropriate conduct, including with minors. If Franco is found to have violated the policy, he could face disciplinary action, including suspension or even expulsion from the league.

The allegations against Franco have shocked the baseball world. He is a beloved figure among fans and teammates, and his potential is limitless. However, if the allegations are true, it would be a major setback for his career and for the Rays organization.

The investigation into Franco is ongoing. It is unclear how long it will take MLB to complete its investigation or what the outcome will be. However, the allegations have cast a shadow over Franco’s career and the Rays’ season.
