In November, former Seattle Mariners employee Dr. Lorena Martin alleged she was not treated fairly because she was a woman. She claimed that employees made ‘derogatory and inappropriate comments’ about her.

She made these claims after she was fired by the team.

Major League Baseball took these allegations seriously. The investigation began shortly after she made her claims public.

MLB hired Epstein Becker Green, a national law firm, which specializes in labor and employment matters, interviewed 17 potential witnesses, including Dr. Martin.

However, they found no wrongdoing by the Mariners to violate the MLB’s Workplace Code of Conduct. “

“The investigation also concluded that there is no credible evidence to support Dr. Martin’s claim that Mariners’ employees, including Jerry Dipoto, Scott Servais, or Andy McKay, made any of the comments attributed to them in her public statement or subsequent lawsuit,” MLB said in a statement. “Because of the ongoing litigation, MLB will haven o further comment on this matter.”

The Mariners hired Dr. Martin as the first-ever Director of High Performance in Oct. 2017. When she was hired, she was responsible to coordinating all aspects of the Mariners physical and mental training approach of players and staff, while also overseeing the organization’s medical, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and mental skills departments.

In Dec. 2018, one month after her firing, the team allege she was ‘dishonest and misrepresented herself.’
