‘One of ML’s best finishes’ Diaz suspends 10 games for foreign substance use

Edwin Diaz of the New York Mets, one of the best closers in the U.S. Major League Baseball (ML), will not be able to play due to the use of foreign substances. 토토사이트 꽁머니

The ML secretariat said on the 25th (Korea Standard Time) that “Diaz, who was sent off for violating foreign substance regulations the day before, will be suspended for 10 games.”

Diaz took the mound with a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Chicago Cubs on the 24th and was sent off after a sticky foreign substance was found in his hand. Before he was sent off, Diaz asked the referee to smell his hand, saying, “It’s because it’s a mixture of rosin, sweat and dust.”

However, referee Big Karapaza, who sent Diaz off, said, “It wasn’t just rosin and sweat, as he claimed. I know how he feels after checking his hands thousands of times. But his hands were very sticky, and I could immediately tell it was a substance other than rosin.”

In the end, Diaz was given a 10-game ban like other pitchers whose foreign substances were detected. Diaz can appeal, but the punishment for foreign substances has never been reduced.

Diaz became the first bullpen pitcher to surpass $100 million in down payment when he signed a five-year, $102 million (about 141.3 billion won) contract with the Mets in November 2022.
