“Everybody, calm down,” Hernandez wrote. “This current crisis is unfortunate to the nth degree, but not insurmountable. We have a solid team, good core of young everyday players, mixed with veterans, and a solid rotation. They have great camaraderie, spirit, a will to win, and they’re hungry.”

As for the NL Rookie of the Year-winning Alonso, he didn’t comment directly on Beltran’s departure, but ackowledged that the MLB sign-stealing scandal has rocked the sport.

“Yes: there’s a lot of craziness in the baseball world right now,” Alonso wrote. “At the end of the day, we have to do our job on the field and win the battle between the lines. Great things are to come this year. The boys will be ready. #LFGM”
