Braves general manager Frank Wren says the team is still gathering information on allegations that pitching coach Roger McDowell made homophobic comments and crude gestures toward fans before a game in San Francisco last weekend.

The Braves will forward results of their inquiry to commissioner Bud Selig. Wren said Saturday the Braves “are still working on it.”

The team placed McDowell on administrative leave Friday, a day after he apologized in a statement.

Wren says any punishment will be coordinated with Major League Baseball.

Minor league pitching coordinator Dave Wallace is filling in for McDowell.
