Gurriel apologized after the game, claiming his intent wasn't to offend.
Gurriel said on Friday that it's common in Cuba to use the word "chinito" to describe someone of Asian heritage, although he admitted he realizes it is considered offensive in Japan. He said he knows the Japanese are offended by it because he played in Japan in 2014. "I was commenting to my teammates that I hadn't had any good luck against Japanese pitchers".
Darvish termed Gurriel's ugly gesture "disrespectful" but was mostly in a forgiving mood, suggesting it be a learning experience. Darvish is not Chinese; he was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Iranian father.
But neither the Astros nor the Major League Baseball Players Association are likely to go for that.
"I feel like, of course, Houston has Asian fans and Japanese fans, and Asian fans live all over the place", 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.
"I know he's remorseful", Houston manager A.J. Hinch said.
Major League Baseball suspended two players this season for using slurs. "I sincerely apologize to everyone that I offended with my actions".
"But I'm sure the Astros have Asian fans, and there are a lot of Asian people all over the world, and to those people, from a humanistic perspective and as a baseball organization, I thought the Astros' image might suffer as a result". We're just going to have to learn from it.
"I see a difference between behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", he said. 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. He was sent to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline. "It's just learn from it, and we've got to move forward".
