Fiers declines to discuss whistleblower role in cheat scam

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland Athletics pitcher Mike Fiers didn't have any more to say regarding his role as a whistleblower.

Fiers declined Friday to answer questions about revealing the sign-stealing scam that has engulfed Major League Baseball, instead saying he simply wanted to focus on the future. He spoke a day ahead of an A's fan event, his first public appearance since divulging the Houston Astros used electronics to illicitly steal signs from opposing catchers in 2017.

"I don't want this to be a distraction to them. I want them to be ready for the season," Fiers said. "For me it's all about getting ready for the season, playing baseball and not being a distraction to this team."
