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

Astros chase Yu Darvish with 4-run 2nd inning

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.

The cameras were on Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel in Game 3 when he made what appeared to be a racially insensitive gesture after hitting a home run off of Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish.

Darvish, 31, was tagged for four runs off five hits in the second inning, the first of those a solo home run by Gurriel, who later in the Astros dugout put his fingers to the outside of his eyes and pulled the skin tight.

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

"I see a difference in behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", Manfred said, via Scott Boeck of USA Today. I have a lot of respect. He grew up in Japan and played there before coming to Major League Baseball in 2012. "I was commenting to my [teammates] that I hadn't had any good luck against Japanese pitchers here in the U.S".

Darvish termed Gurriel's ugly gesture "disrespectful" but was mostly in a forgiving mood, suggesting it be a learning experience.

"I've never had anything against Darvish". 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.

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

The Astros' manager A.J. Hinch described Gurriel as "remorseful", according to the L.A. Times.

"He has handled this entire hard situation in an exemplary way", Manfred said of Darvish.

Game 4 of the World Series will be Saturday night when Charlie Morton starts for Houston. Everybody's different. We've just got to learn from it. We are all human beings. "I would also like to apologize to the Dodgers organization, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game", he said.
