Another major umpire scandal is taking the league by storm. The MLB has suspended veteran umpire Pat Hoberg for violating the league's gambling rules.

Per MLB Insider Jeff Passan, Hoberg is planning to appeal the leagues decision to suspend him.
"MLB has disciplined umpire Pat Hoberg for violating the league's gambling rules. While the specific nature of the discipline Is unknown, Hoberg has denied betting on baseball, sources tell ESPN, and is appealing the ruling, which

@EvanDrellich
first reported."

Although there hasn't been a full breakdown on why Hoberg was suspended, but the MLB has said that there is no evidence that he bet or affected any games he was involved with.
"During this year's Spring Training, Major League Baseball commenced an investigation regarding a potential violation of MLB's sports betting policies by Umpire Pat Hoberg. Mr. Hoberg was removed from the field during the pendency of that investigation. While MLB's investigation did not find any evidence that games worked by Mr. Hoberg were compromised or manipulated in any way, MLB determined that discipline was warranted. Mr. Hoberg has chosen to appeal that determination. Therefore, we cannot comment further until the appeal process is concluded," Jeff Passan.
