After being dispatched by the Astros in the first round of the playoffs, the Cleveland Indians apparently warned the Boston Red Sox that Houston might attempt to steal signs or information from their dugout.
"We are aware of the matter, and it will be handled internally", Pat Courtney, MLB's chief communications officer, said Tuesday night, following Boston's 8-2 victory in Game 3 at Houston's Minute Maid Park.
According to Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com, an employee of the Astros, holding a cellphone camera, was removed twice by security from the photographer's pit next to the Indians' dugout during Game 3 on October 8.
"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game.

"There's some unintended consequences that come with the advancement of technology", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. ESPN's Buster Olney pointed out the Red Sox were using multiple signs with the bases empty to avoid having their signs stolen, though they did that long before their series with Houston.
