Tampa Bay Franco accused of inappropriate relationship with minor… Initiate investigation into Dominica

The Dominican Republic government has launched an investigation into Wander Franco (22, Tampa Bay Rays) from the Dominican Republic, who is suspected of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor. The Tampa Bay team also listed Franco on the restricted list and excluded it from its power.

According to local media such as ESPN on the 15th (Korean time), the Ministry of Justice of the Dominican Republic announced that it was conducting an investigation into Franco.

On the 14th, a post was posted on social network service (SNS), revealing that Franco had an inappropriate relationship with a minor. While the Tampa Bay and Major League Baseball (MLB) secretariats are figuring out the details, the Ministry of Justice of Franco’s home country, the Dominican Republic, has also launched an investigation.

When this fact became known, Tampa Bay did not play Franco against the Cleveland Guardians on the 14th. Also, from the 15th to the 21st, Tampa Bay played six consecutive away matches against the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Angels, but Franco did not accompany the team.

The Associated Press said, “Tampa Bay has placed Franco on the restricted list. Franco will miss at least six games while the MLB Secretariat is investigating.”

Franco, who made his major league debut in 2021, immediately became Tampa Bay’s flagship hitter with his outstanding batting talent. Accordingly, Tampa Bay also signed an 11-year, $182 million contract with Franco, who finished his debut season.토토사이트
