Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel appeared to mock Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish with a racist gesture during Game 3 of the World Series at Minute Maid Park on Friday night.
After he hit a home run in the bottom of the second inning, Gurriel was seen on the Fox broadcast pulling at his eyes in a gesture that appeared to mock Darvish's Japanese heritage.
According to the Los Angeles Times' Andy McCullough, Darvish called the gesture "disrespectful."
"He made a mistake," Darvish added, per McCullough. "He'll learn from it. We're all human beings."
The New York Times' Tyler Kepner later reported Major League Baseball plans to interview Gurriel about the incident as it debates whether to discipline him.
Gurriel, who is Cuban, played for the Yokohama BayStars of the Japan Central League in 2014.
