Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate allegations he made homophobic comments and sexual gestures towards fans at AT&T Park in San Francisco last weekend.

General manager Frank Wren hopes to conclude the team’s investigation this weekend. Manager Fredi Gonzalez doesn’t think McDowell will lose his job as a result.

“In my opinion, it shouldn’t. It really shouldn’t,” Gonzalez said. “I’m sure there’s some hoops he’s going to go through, some apologizing, which he should have to go through. But for a person to lose their job, I wouldn’t think so. I hope it doesn’t.”
