Yuli Gurriel banned over racist gesture

Darvish called the gesture "disrespectful", but later said he hoped it could be a teachable moment.

As part of the punishment, Gurriel will undergo sensitivity training during the offseason while the Astros, in a gesture of support, have agreed to donate Gurriel's salary for the five games to charitable causes.

"I understand people will have different views but it was my best judgement that this timing was appropriate", Manfred said. I have a lot of respect for Japan.

Center fielder George Springer leads off, followed by third baseman Alex Bregman, second baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop Carlos Correa, first baseman Yuli Gurriel, right fielder Josh Reddick, Gattis, left fielder Marwin Gonzalez and McCann.

'I wanted the burden of this discipline to fall primarily on the wrongdoer, ' he said.

HOUSTON, TX - OCTOBER 27: Cody Bellinger #35 of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts during the seventh inning against the Houston Astros in game three of the 2017 World Series at Minute Maid Park on October 27, 2017 in Houston, Texas. "I would also like to apologize to the Dodgers organization, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game", he said.

"No one is flawless", Darvish wrote.

Darvish was born to a Japanese mother and an Iranian father. But with there being only one more day without baseball until the end of the season, it would have been very hard for Manfred to have held a full disciplinary procedure - which would have to include an appeals process as well - before the end of the campaign.

The league has recently suspended players caught using slurs. 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. Toronto's Kevin Pillar and Oakland's Matt Joyce were each banned for two games this season after making anti-gay comments.

Commissioner Rob Manfred was expected to meet with Gurriel on Saturday before the Astros were to play the Dodgers in Game 4 of the World Series.
