Astros' Yuli Gurriel Suspended For Racist Gesture

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

"But I played in Japan and I know [that is] offensive, so I apologize for that", he added.

"Acting like that, you just disrespect all the people around the world", he said in Japanese through a translator. I would also like to apologizs to the Dodgers organisation, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game, ' he said.

Following Manfred's announcement, the Houston Astros released another apology from Gurriel, who they insist is "extremely remorseful" over the incident.

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.

After the game, Darvish called the gesture by Gurriel disrespectful but said he still respected his opponent and that everyone should use it as a learning opportunity. He was traded to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline.

"That precedent is not adequate to deal with the current situation", Manfred said.

Earlier this year Liam , who became a dad for the first time in March of this year, opened up about Cheryl trying to dump him. However, they'd actually met many years before, when Liam auditioned for TV talent show The X Factor when Cheryl was a judge.

"Yes, of course. I want to talk to him because I have nothing against him", he said. 'I've made a decision to go beyond that precedent as a statement of our disapproval of this behaviour'.

Said Manfred: "There is no place in our game for the behavior or any behavior like the behavior we witnessed last night".

Many, even some Astros fans, thought the suspension during next season was not good enough.

'There is no excuse or explanation that makes that type of behavior acceptable, ' he said.

Manfred also justified not banning Gurriel for the World Series because he wanted a loss of salary involved and because Gurriel, who could play while appealing any suspension under Major League Baseball's collective bargaining agreement with its players union, would not appeal this move.

"I see a difference between behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", he said. "At no point did I mean that in an offensive way". I think that we all, all need continuing reminders and education in this area as to what's appropriate and not appropriate.
