Former Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch and ex-general manager Jeff Luhnow will be credited with serving their one-season suspensions for their parts in the club's sign-stealing scandal if the 2020 campaign is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.

The news that Luhnow and Hinch will be able to return to baseball in 2021 regardless of games played will not go over well in the baseball world.

It's a lesson in choosing words carefully: In handing down the punishment in January, Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said the suspensions end "following the completion of the 2020 World Series".

This scalable vaccine is the first-ever peer-reviewed antidote against the coronavirus affected many countries around the world. The study's authors are now applying for an investigational new drug approval from the US Food and Drug Administration.

Because the suspensions are tied to the end of the 2020 postseason rather than a specific number of games, Major League Baseball will view Luhnow and Hinch as having served their discipline this year, according to sources. Alex Cora, who was Houston's bench coach in 2017, lost his job as Boston's manager as a result of the scandal.

In addition to suspending Luhnow and Hinch, MLB took the Astros' first- and second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and fined them $5 million.

The Astros won the World Series in 2017 and the Red Sox, with Cora as a rookie manager, won in 2018. It easily could be the case that neither man is hired by a team that soon, if ever.
