As the result of ruling handed down by commissioner Rob Manfred, St. Louis will relinquish their top two picks in this year’s amateur draft and pay the Astros $2 million as punishment for hacking into Houston’s email system and scouting database. Chris Correa, the former Cardinals scouting director, who pled guilty in federal court to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer, is placed on baseball’s permanently ineligible list, after being sentenced to serve 46 months in prison.
