Gurriel apologizes for Darvish gesture

Astros' Gurriel may be punished for gesture at LA's Darvish

It was announced Saturday afternoon that Gurriel, who apologized for making the gesture, was suspended by the Major League Baseball for five games next season.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel will be suspended the first five games of the 2018 season without pay after making an insensitive gesture and using a derogatory word during Friday night's game, allowing him to play the remainder of the 2018 World Series. After hitting a home run during the second inning, Gurriel squinted his eyes in a way seen as mocking Darvish's Asian heritage.

After the game, Gurriel, a Cuba native, was asked about the gesture, for which he quickly apologized.

"I did not want to offend anybody", Gurriel said after the game via an interpreter. "On the contrary, I've always had a lot of respect for them".

"But I was in Japan and I know that it's offensive, and honestly, I apologize to [Darvish]". "I was commenting that I did not have any good luck against Japanese pitchers in the United States".

Gurriel will lose £245,000 of his £9million salary next year, which the Astros will donate to charitable causes.

"The two (games ban) that is the standard that had evolved over two or three situations was inadequate", Manfred said.

"There is no place in our game for the behavior or any behavior like the behavior we witnessed last night", Manfred told a news conference before Saturday's Game Four in Houston. He won't be forced to miss any games during the 2017 World Series. 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.

"Acting like that, you just disrespect all the people around the world", he said in Japanese through a translator. "I wanted the burden of this discipline to fall primarily on the wrongdoer", Manfred said. The punishment came a day after Gurriel's actions toward the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher during Game 3. If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for mankind.
