LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former major league pitcher Mike Bolsinger is suing the Houston Astros. He contends that the Astros'  sign-stealing scheme contributed to a poor relief appearance in August 2017 that essentially ended his big league career. The suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeks unspecified damages for interfering with and harming his career. He’s also asking the Astros forfeit their nearly $31 million in postseason shares from their 2017 World Series title, with the money going to children’s charities in Los Angeles and a fund for needy retired players.
