Houston Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch have been suspended for one year in connection with a Major League Baseball investigation, according to ESPN.

ESPN said the investigation found that the team used technology to cheat during its World Series-winning 2017 season, according to ESPN. No players have been disciplined as part of the investigation. 

ESPN said the MLB will fine the Astros $5 million and take away their first- and second-round picks in the 2020 and 2021 drafts.
