Houston Astros outfielder George Springer has been disciplined for directing foul language, that many consider homophobic, at umpire Angel Hernandez.
During an April 23 game against the Minnesota Twins, Springer was called out on strikes by Hernandez.
After the incident, cameras caught Springer calling Hernandez a “f—— c———.”
Outsports reached out to MLB regarding the issue, and the league confirmed Springer had been disciplined for his actions.
MLB released the following statement to Outsports:
“This inappropriate behavior was addressed with Mr. Springer and the Houston Astros … and he has been disciplined.” Two MLB sources who asked not to be identified would only say Springer’s remark did not go unnoticed, and was addressed by the commissioner’s office.
The league did not disclose specifics regarding Springer’s punishment.
Springer has played in every game since the incident.
Interesting why they’re choosing not to disclose the actual punishment.
