Major League Baseball launched an official investigation into Brandon Taubman's expletive-filled tirade directed at three female reporters.

“I’m really concerned at this point about the underlying substance of the situation,’’ Rob Manfred said, “and what the atmosphere was, how it came to be. That’s my focus right now.

“We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive, harassment-free environment in all the various aspects of our business. I think it’s a core value for baseball and I think we have to be tremendously concerned when we have an incident that attracts this much attention.’’

Taubman allegedly yelled: “Thank God we got (Roberto) Osuna! I’m so (expletive) glad we got Osuna!” 

Osuna was acquired in July 2018 while he was serving a 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse policy.
