Wander Franco's administrative leave extended through July 14 by MLB, players' association

May 31, 2024

NEW YORK (AP) — Wander Franco's administrative leave was extended through July 14 by Major League Baseball and the players' association.

Tampa Bay's All-Star shortstop has not played since Aug. 12 while MLB continues its investigation into an alleged relationship with a minor.

Administrative leave is not disciplinary under the sport’s joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy, and a player continues to be paid. Franco, who has a $2 million salary this year, has remained in his native Dominican Republic while authorities there investigate.
