The source close to the Wanderer investigation confirms Franco will no longer play in the MLB
The Wanderer Franco case continues to spill over into the major leagues and the future looks complicated, as MLB is in the process of investigating an accusation against a Tampa Bay Rays player of having an affair with a minor.
This has cost other players their careers, such as pitcher Felipe Vazquez, a Venezuelan who is languishing in prison after being convicted in 2020.
A person very close to the Wanderer Franco investigation has confirmed that it is “very unlikely” that Franco will ever play again in MLB, according to information released by journalist Hector Gomez, who is covering the event.
The consequences could be dire for the Dominicans, who could go to jail if all of this were confirmed. Plus, the extension would miss out on Juice who signed him in 2021 to an 11-year, $182 million contract.
The shortstop is on the MLB restricted list and cannot act or accompany his team until the investigative process by the major leagues is complete.
In the past few hours, photos have circulated on social media showing the Dominican with the minor, who will be 14 years old.
