"I did not mean it to be offensive at any point", Gurriel said, via ESPN.
After the game, Gurriel-who actually played professionally in Japan in 2014-apologized. "I was commenting to my [teammates] that I hadn't had any good luck against Japanese pitchers here in the U.S".
"During last night's game, I made an offensive gesture that was indefensible", he said.
Darvish was born to a Japanese mother and an Iranian father. But now that a tyrannical cultural left has bullied our institutions, including all professional sports organizations, into relentlessly and harshly enforcing every item of the vast PC code of etiquette, Major League Baseball is getting into the act, and elevating this boys-will-be-boys rudeness from the misdemeanor it is into a capital offense.
"In Cuba and in various places, you don't say Japanese, you call all Asians 'Chinitos, ' " Darvish said.
In announcing the suspension, the commissioner offered four reasons why Gurriel would not be forced to miss any time for the remainder of the World Series.
Major League Baseball is reportedly considering disciplinary action against Gurriel.
"First of all, I felt it was important that the suspension carried with it the penalty of lost salary", Manfred said.
The league and the players union also could negotiate a deal and propose that Gurriel accept it, foregoing the need for an appeal. I'm sure A.J. Hinch could get Yuli to act a bit more respectful of others without the league sticking its unnecessary oar in.
"In no moment did I try to offend anyone, on the contrary I have a lot of respect", he told reporters in Spanish.
Manfred said he did not banish the 33-year-old Cuban infielder from this year's best-of-seven championship series against the Los Angeles Dodgers in part because he did not want to punish the entire Astros squad for one player's actions. We're just going to have to learn from it. He was traded to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline.
Darvish tweeted a response after the game, saying, "What he had done today isn't right, but I believe we should put our effort into learning rather than to accuse him". Matt Joyce of the Oakland Athletics and Kevin Pillar of the Toronto Blue Jays each were suspended two games this season for using anti-gay slurs.
Twitter erupted with backlash towards Gurriel after the incident.
