Astros' Yuli Gurriel 'did not want to offend anybody' with racist gesture

Astros' Yuli Gurriel 'did not want to offend anybody' with racist gesture

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred announced on Saturday that he was suspending Gurriel without pay for five games at the start of next season, and said he chose to delay the suspension because he didn't think it would be fair to penalize Gurriel's teammates by suspending the first baseman - who is hitting.340 this postseason - from any World Series games.

After hitting a home run off Darvish to put the Astros ahead of Los Angeles early in Friday's Game Three, the 33-year-old Cuban was caught on camera using his hands to make a slanted-eye gesture while in the dugout.

'I understand that people may have different views, ' Commissioner Rob Manfred said. I would particularly like to apologize to Yu Darvish, a pitcher that I admire and respect. He grew up in Japan and played there before coming to Major League Baseball in 2012. "I was commenting to my family that I didn't have any luck against Japanese pitchers here in the United States". "While both are problematic, I don't see them as the same issue".

Watson was promoted from assistant to interim head coach of the Suns after Jeff Hornacek was sacked February 1, 2016. Watson was hired as the interim coach after the Suns after they fired Jeff Hornacek in 2016.

Manfred said he was 'impressed in my conversation with Yu Darvish by his desire to move forward, and I felt that moving the suspension to the beginning of the season would help in that regard'.

"Acting like that, you just disrespect all the people around the world", he said in Japanese through a translator. As ESPN's Buster Olney has pointed out, even if Manfred had tried to suspend Gurriel during the World Series, the players' union appeal process would have delayed the suspension until next season anyway. If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for mankind. I would also like to apologizs to the Dodgers organisation, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game, ' he said.
