Gurriel banned 5 games in 2018 for racist gesture at Darvish

HOUSTON (AP) - Yuli Gurriel of the Houston Astros has been suspended for five games next season for making a racist gesture at Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish during the World Series.
    
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced the penalty Saturday, a day after Gurriel's actions during Game 3.
    
Manfred said he didn't think it would be fair to penalize the rest of the Astros by suspending Gurriel during the World Series. Manfred said he understood other people might take a different view.
    
Gurriel will miss the first five games of the 2018 season and will not be paid during his suspension.
