Gurriel banned 5 games in 2018 for racist gesture at Darvish

Posted October 30, 2017

Before MLB decided on Gurriel's punishment, ESPN's Buster Olney noted it would be hard to suspend him for any games in the World Series due to the way the appeals process is set up.

Saying "there is no excuse or explanation that makes that type of behavior acceptable", Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred suspended the Astros' Yuli Gurriel five games without pay, starting next season, for his actions during Game 3 of the World Series Friday night.

Gurriel was in the dugout in the second inning after hitting one out of the park off Yu Darvish when he set his sights on Dodgers pitcher, who is from Japan.

The Cuban-born Gurriel apologized for the gesture and remark after the game on Friday, insisting through a translator that he "didn't mean to offend" Darvish, and pointing out that he has "great respect" for Japanese players since he played in Japan earlier in his career.

"The gesture was saying that I wish he would look at me like one of them and maybe he'd throw me an easy pitch so I can do something, " Gurriel said, according to USA Today. "I played in Japan".

Pitcher Jake Diekman used an emoji to call the gesture trash, and outfielder Ryan Rua said "really hope that gesture from Gurriel wasnt directed towards Yu.no place for that".

"I understand the gravity of this type of thing", said Hinch. It's unclear at this time whether Gurriel will be disciplined for his actions.

Gurriel will lose £245,000 of his £9million salary next year, which the Astros will donate to charitable causes. This has been a talking point amongst the media and fans, though Gurriel was still cheered by Astros fans when he was announced in the line-up on Saturday.

The Astros and Dodgers will face each other Saturday night in Game 4 of the series on FOX 5.

"The two (games ban) that is the standard that had evolved over two or three situations was inadequate", Manfred said. I've never had anything against Darvish. "It's just learn from it, and we've got to move forward". "I would also like to apologize to the Dodgers organization, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game".
