Major League Baseball mulls discipline after Yuli Gurriel's insensitive gesture

Major League Baseball mulls discipline after Yuli Gurriel's insensitive gesture

Yuli Gurriel has avoided a suspension during the World Series for an inappropriate gesture during Game 3 of the World Series.

Gurriel had just hit a home run off of Los Angeles Dodgers' pitcher Yu Darvish, who is Japanese-Iranian and was born in Japan. Gurriel may be punished, including a possible suspension during the World Series.

"I understand people will have different views but it was my best judgement that this timing was appropriate", Manfred said.

Gurriel is set to meet with Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred before Game 4 in Houston on Saturday night to see if any type of discipline is warranted. If the Major League Baseball imposes no punishment on Gurriel for them, the implicit message will be that they are.

"I would particularly like to apologise to Yu Darvish, a pitcher I admire and respect". "I offer my apologies to baseball and anyone offended".

Forcing him to sit out a game would be painful for both Gurriel's teammates and their fans, both of whom would be deprived of his superb talents at the plate and in the field.

Batshuayi was given two good chances to add to his tally and put Chelsea back ahead only to miss the target on each occasion. Watford , who are flying high in fourth place, have made one change to the starting XI that beat Arsenal last week.


"I see a difference between behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", he said.

Gurriel pulled on the corners of his eyes after homering off Darvish during Houston's 5-3 win in Game 3 on Friday night. "He expressed remorse. I met with him today". I've never had anything against Darvish. We say that with a heavy heart, because everything we know of Gurriel-and we know quite a bit-tells us that he is a good and decent man, and we believe him when he says that he did not mean to offend.

He added: "I am truly sorry to the players for how this has impacted them and the perception that it has created of me which could not be further from the truth".

"Yuli has always demonstrated respectful behavior and is extremely remorseful for his actions", Luhnow said.

Darvish took exception to Gurriel's actions on Friday. He signed a five-year deal with the Astros in July 2016 and appeared in 36 games last season. The Houston Astros will donate Gurriel's missed salary to charitable causes. I didn't think anybody would think about what I meant in that way. He had no intention of offending anyone, but now recognizes the perceived offensiveness of his actions.

The Astros lead the series 2-1, with Game 4 set for Saturday at Minute Maid Park.
