According to the report in the New York Times, a Red Sox video replay personnel member would pick up the catcher's signs from the video feed, determine the sequencing when a runner was on second base and relay that information to a team trainer, who was wearing an Apple Watch. However, the Red Sox also filed a countercomplaint with the league, accusing the Bronx Bombers of also stealing hand signals, but instead of Apple Watches, using their television network YES as the conduit.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, in a news conference, says he takes both allegations "extremely seriously" and says the league "will conduct a thorough investigation of the charges on both sides". With multiple pieces of evidence in their possession, the league went directly to the Red Sox to present the case.
Clever, clever. It's notable the matter became public the same day that the Sox filed a counter-complaint about the Yankees: for using a TV camera to steal signs. "I don't think this is what video is meant for, so teams can use it to their advantage".
How were the Red Sox stealing signs?
As for penalties, the Times notes that old-school sign stealing is not against the rules, but using binoculars or other devices (presumably including Apple Watches) is a violation.
