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.
After hitting a home run in the second inning of Friday's Game 3 off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish, Gurriel was seen in the Astros' dugout using his fingers to motion at his own eyes in a mocking gesture.
After the game, Gurriel, a Cuba native, was asked about the gesture, for which he quickly apologized. "I sincerely apologise to everyone I offended with my actions".
"The Houston Astros were surprised and disappointed by the behavior displayed by Yuli Gurriel during last night's game". Gurriel also reportedly said the word "chinito", which translates into something like "little Chinese boy".
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.
Darvish played professionally in Japan from 2005-11 before joining the Texas Rangers in 2012.
"I've never had anything against Darvish", Gurriel said.
"Yes, of course. I want to talk to him because I have nothing against him", he said. "And I used the best judgment as to where the appropriate disciplinary level fell". "And acting like that, it's just disrespectful to people around the world, to the Houston organization". He was traded to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline. "I didn't try to offend anybody". The league has suspended players several times in the past for using slurs, including most recently Matt Joyce of the Oakland A's, who was suspended for two days in August for directing an anti-gay slur at a fan who was heckling him.
Twitter erupted with backlash towards Gurriel after the incident. "It's just learn from it, and we've got to move forward".
