Major League (MLB) representative ace Max Scherzer (39, New York Mets) was ejected during the game due to the use of foreign substances.
On the 20th (Korean time), Scherzer started in the Los Angeles Dodgers away game held at Dodger Stadium in California, USA, and cruised without a loss until the 3rd inning. However, ahead of the mound at the end of the 4th inning, the umpire inspected the glove, and first base umpire Phil Cousy ejected Sureer. Suzer, who protested with the same problem in the 3rd episode, explained that the cause of the ‘stickiness’ was rosin and sweat, but the judges did not accept it. 스포츠토토
According to MLB’s official website, MLB.com, umpire Dan Bellino said, “In the past three seasons, when I checked my hands, this one was the most sticky. When I touched my hands, my fingers stuck to my hands.” , suspected that it was pitched negatively. Scherger’s agent, Scott Boras, sent a statement to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman attacking the subjectivity of referees. He pointed out that “MLB needs to make certain rules that can be verified using (non-subjective) scientific methods.”
Surezer, who debuted in the big leagues in 2008, is a great pitcher who has won the Cy Young Award three times in his personal career. His career (16 years) was 203 wins, 103 losses, and an average ERA of 3.12. He went 2-1 with a 3.72 earned run average in 4 starts this season. It is a superstar representing MLB, but if this case of foreign matter is confirmed as fact, it is expected to be a big stain on his career.
If it is confirmed that foreign substances were used, a 10-game suspension will be applied. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightingale, Scherzer plans to appeal the disciplinary action.
