Tucupita Marcano Under Investigation for Betting on Baseball

Marcano, 24, was placed on the injured list by the Pirates in July of last year, undergoing surgery to repair his ACL. The Padres eventually claimed him off waivers in November and has since been on the injured list for this season. From the report that Diamond and Adler released, the league and the MLB Players’ Association are still discussing Marcano’s ultimate punishment.

“We are aware of an active investigation by Major League Baseball regarding a matter that occurred when the player in question was a member of another organization and not affiliated with the San Diego Padres,” the Padres said in a statement to the WSJ. “We will not have any further comment until the investigative process has been completed.”

Marcano was sign❀ed b🐎y the Padres as an amateur free agent out of Veneluzea in 2016. He was traded to the Pirates in 2021 with Jack Sunwinski for Adam Fraizer.

MLB Has Faced Similar Scandals This Season

MLB rules state that players are permitted to gamble on non-diamond sports legally, but they cannot gamble on baseball or softball at any level. A player caught gambling on teams other than his faces a one-year suspension for a first offense and a lifetime ban if he’s found having gambled on his own team, which Marcano is being accused of.

The news surrounding Marcano comes weeks after Ippei Mizuhara was charged with stealing more than $16 million from . Mizuhara did so to pay off gambling debts to an illegal bookie, who now faces up to 33 years in prison. Most recently, Atlanta Braves minor leaguer is also being investigated by MLB for placing bets with the same ill🐻egal bookmaker that Mizuhara use𝐆d.
