Before the Red Sox named Ron Roenicke interim manager, a report surfaced stating the Red Sox would hear about MLB’s investigation into Boston’s 2018 season next week. Mitch Moreland has also heard that will be the case.
Like his 2018 teammates, he was interviewed as part of the process. When he addressed the situation publicly for the first time on Friday, the first baseman spoke about that season a little differently than Andrew Benintendi and J.D. Martinez.
But, it doesn’t sound like Moreland feels the Red Sox did anything wrong.
“From what I remember from it, we were just really — we were a good team and we went out and we prepared well and we won it,” he said. “That’s the best team I’ve ever played on. That’s something I’ll never forget. Big memory for me. I’m looking forward to making another run maybe this year.”
Other than confirming his meeting with MLB, Moreland would not speak further on the situation when asked follow-ups. He twice stated, “We’ll talk about it when it comes out.”
