Astro Yuli Gurriel Mocks Asians ... With Racist Gesture

Gurriel will not be suspended during the World Series, and will instead serve his ban at the beginning of next season. "I would also like to apologize to the Dodgers organization, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game", he said. "If he felt offended, I want to apologize to him". "I deeply regret it", Gurriel said in a statement. I have a lot of respect. The five-game suspension will be without pay and the Astros' first baseman will be required to attend sensitivity training, according to Mike Oz.

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. 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. He also used a derogatory Spanish term in reference to Darvish, who was born in Japan. Darvish is of Japanese and Iranian descent. But Major League Baseball doesn't have time for such an inquiry. The MLB Players Association has announced that Gurriel will not appeal, however.

Darvish said he had seen Gurriel's gesture. I'm sure Darvish did. "Acting like that is just disrespectful to people around the world".

"I've never had anything against Darvish", Gurriel said. For me, he's always been one of the best pitchers. If he was offended, I ask for his forgiveness. Indeed, he says that they come from a place of "ignorance", and that Gurriel was right to apologize for them.

Yesterday the draw with a tough Korean team and today a good fight especially in the final quarter. On winning the title, the captain, Manpreet Singh, said, "Great honour to captain this team".

"I know he's remorseful", Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. It's unclear at this time whether Gurriel will be disciplined for his actions.

There is precedent for a suspension. He signed a five-year deal with the Astros in July 2016 and appeared in 36 games last season.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale first reported Gurriel's suspension.

During the five-minute interview, Gurriel seemed surprised at the attention he was receiving over the incident.

"No one is flawless", Darvish wrote.

"If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for mankind", he added. In addition, he later wrote "let's stay positive and move forward" on Twitter, part of a statement remarkable for its magnanimity, especially given the huge disappointment Darvish no doubt felt over Friday's pitching performance, in which he lasted less than two innings, gave up six hits and four runs.
