Team denies players wore buzzers

The Houston Astros gathered Thursday on the first day of spring training to express how sorry they were for electronically stealing signs during the 2017 season. 

However, owner Jim Crane and select players also faced questions regarding rumors the Astros wore buzzers underneath their jerseys last season.

“The commissioner addressed that in the report. I’m confident it’s accurate. I discussed it with the players. … I truly believe there were no buzzers,” Crane told reporters at the team’s spring training complex in West Palm Beach, Florida. “I don’t even know where that came from.”

After the commissioner’s report, which found extensive cheating within the Astros ranks, was released, the team fired general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch. But accusations of the buzzers began circulating online and through various player interviews across the league.

Astros second baseman Jose Altuve (27) hit a walk-off home run off Yankees closer Aroldis Champan to send Houston to the 2019 World Series.

But shortstop Carlos Correa categorically denied the buzzer claims. 

“No. No. That’s a lie. Nobody wore a buzzer. Nobody wore devices,” Correa told reporters. “The story should be killed already because we know for sure, we are 100 percent (sure) as a team. … It’s just straight-up false. 2018, nothing. 2019, nothing. 2017 nobody wore devices either. It was just what was in the report.”
