Mets general manager Jared Porter sent reporter unsolicited photos

메츠 general manager Jared Porter’s standing with the team could be on shaky ground following a report late Monday night indicating he sent unsolicited texts and images to a female reporter in 2016, culminating with a shot of a naked, erect penis.

ESPN reported that Porter, then working for the Cubs, sent the woman — a foreign correspondent who had moved to the U.S. to cover Major League Baseball — 17 pictures. The first 15 photos were of a hotel and restaurants. The 16th was of a bulge in his pants and the 17th was of a bare penis.

Porter acknowledged to ESPN he had texted with the woman, but initially said he had not sent any pictures of himself. Presented with more evidence he denied the explicit pictures were of himself, calling themjoke stock images.
