Astro Yuli Gurriel Mocks Asians ... With Racist Gesture

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

Gurriel made the gesture and uttered the term "chinito", which translates to little Chinese boy, after hitting a home run off Darvish in the second inning of the Astros' 5-3 victory over the Dodgers in Game 3 at Minute Maid Park.

"In no moment did I try to offend anyone, on the contrary I have a lot of respect", he told reporters in Spanish. I deeply regret it. Cameras caught Gurriel stretching the corners of his eyes with his fingers, a racist gesture against people of Asian descent.

"The Houston Astros were surprised and disappointed by the behavior displayed by Yuli Gurriel during last night's game. I played in Japan".

Gurriel will also be forced to undergo sensitivity training in the off-season, Manfred said.

"Mr. Gurriel to his credit quickly realized that his behavior was wrong", Manfred said.

"Personally, it doesn't really bother me", Darvish said. "And acting like that, it's just disrespectful to people around the world, to the Houston organization". "He played in Japan and I have respect for him". Everybody's different. We've just got to learn from it.

Gurriel said he would be happy to speak with Darvish.

Immediately after the game, Darvish said he was angry. "I think he's one of the best pitchers in Japan, and I never had success against him. That wasn't my intention". He claimed that he was excited because he had not hit a home run off a Japanese pitcher since his debut in August 2016.

"I was commenting how I hadn't had much luck with Darvish", Gurriel said.

"Look, I see a difference between behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", Manfred said.

Gurriel said he was aware that "Chinito" is regarded as a slur among the Japanese. "I know it's offensive to them and they don't like that, but they didn't mean to do it". Gurriel will not miss any time during the World Series, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

There is precedent for a suspension.

Sensex down 71 points; Nifty trades at 10274
For the week, the Sensex recorded handsome gains of 767.26 points or 2.37 per cent - its best weekly gain since January 27. The broader 50-share Nifty finished at its fresh lifetime high of 10,295.35, up by 87.65 points, or 0.86 per cent.

"We support [MLB's] decision of a five-game suspension for the 2018 season". An expedited appeal could be heard during the World Series.

"Last, when I originally began thinking about the discipline, I thought that delaying the suspension would allow the player the opportunity to exercise his rights under the grievance procedure".

"No one is ideal", Darvish wrote. "That includes both you and I".

"If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for mankind", he added.

Darvish later tweeted "let's stay positive and move forward instead of focusing on anger". "I'm counting on everyone's big love".
