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

Manfred met with Gurriel, who apologised after the game, and said the Astros first baseman reiterated his remorse and assured the commissioner that he would be offering a private apology to Darvish.

Gurriel explained that he was joking with his teammates about how he felt like the home run was the result of Darvish deciding to pitch to him as if he were also Japanese, which doesn't really make any of this any better or less offensive.

Gurriel continued, "In the moment, I didn't want to offend him or nobody in Japan because I have a lot of respect for them and I played in Japan", he said, adding that, "I didn't mean to do it".

The 33-year-old Gurriel played in Japan in 2014 and is completing his second season in the major leagues after leaving Cuba.

For his part, Darvish called the gesture "disrespectful" after the game, and pointed out that "Houston has Asian fans and Japanese fans" too.

"He handled this in as classy a way as a player possibly could something as negative as this", Manfred said of Darvish. He put his fingers to the sides of his face and lifted the corners of his eyes, the "slanted eyes" gesture widely regarded as offensive by Asians.

Going into Game 4 of the World Series, the Houston Astros have a 2-1 lead.

And yet, the suspension beginning next season means Gurriel is back in the Astros' lineup tonight. Toronto's Kevin Pillar and Oakland's Matt Joyce each were banned two games this season after making anti-gay comments. I suspect it might be a different story when the series moves to Los Angeles on Tuesday for game six.
