Astros Prospect Tweets Women, Like Jessica Mendoza, Shouldn’t Call MLB Games


Houston Astros prospect Brooks Marlow criticized ESPN baseball analyst Jessica Mendoza in a tweet Wednesday night, and it’s one he certainly regrets sending.

Mendoza was part of ESPN’s broadcast of the National League Wild Card Game between the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets at Citi Field, and Marlow had a thought about her work.

Here’s a screenshot of Marlow’s tweet, which he deleted soon after he posted it.

Marlow appears to have shut down his Twitter for the time being, but the Astros did release a statement regarding his tweet.

Mendoza replaced Curt Schilling on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” telecasts in 2015 and was part of this season’s four-person crew along with Buster Olney, Aaron Boone and Dan Shulman. She’s also a former Olympic gold- and silver-medal winner with Team USA softball.
