Last night, during the All-Star Game, some offensive tweets from Josh Hader’s past came out during the All-Star Game. Josh Hader made his own statement on the tweets after the game, apologizing for those tweets. Lorenzo Cain also spoke on it, standing behind Hader and looking to move forward.
This morning, at about the same time, both the Milwaukee Brewers and Major League Baseball released their own statements on the situation:

Both sides said that Hader’s tweets were unacceptable, and that they will work with him going forward. The MLB statement also said that Hader will be required to undergo sensitivity training and to participate in diversity and inclusion initiatives. It does not appear that a suspension will be given from either the Brewers or MLB, and everything will be handled internally.
