NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Mets general manager Jared Porter sent graphic, uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 while working for the Chicago Cubs in their front office, according to an ESPN report.
Porter sent dozens of texts to the woman, concluding with a picture of "an erect, naked penis," the report said.
ESPN said it obtained a copy of the text history. New York hired the 41-year-old Porter last month after he spent the past four seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks as senior vice president and assistant general manager.
Mets president Sandy Alderson said in a statement that Porter acknowledged to him a serious error in judgment, expressed remorse and had previously apologized for his actions
