CINCINNATI -

 Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has rejected Pete Rose's plea for reinstatement, citing his continued gambling and evidence that he bet on games when he was playing for the Cincinnati Reds.
    
Manfred says in a letter sent to Rose and made public Monday that baseball's hits king hasn't been completely honest about his gambling on baseball games. Manfred also noted that Rose continues to bet on baseball games legally, even though his gambling got him into trouble.
    
Manfred says it's an unacceptable risk to reinstate Rose under those circumstances.
    
The commissioner says that Rose's standing with baseball's Hall of Fame is a separate matter. He's currently ineligible to be considered for the ballot.
