The New York Mets have fired general manager Jared Porter.

The move came a day after ESPN reported that he sent explicit, unsolicited texts and images to a female reporter in 2016 while working for the Chicago Cubs.

"In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it," Mets owner Steve Cohen tweeted. "There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior."

Porter, 41, was hired as Mets GM on Dec. 13 to work under team president Sandy Alderson and help lead new owner Cohen's front office.
