Mariners’ Hector Santiago Ejected for Foreign Substances

Seattle Mariners’ Hector Santiago became the first player to be ejected for the use of foreign substance under Major League Baseball’s new protocols on Sunday in a game against his former team.

33-year-old Santiago said it was just “sweat and rosin.”

Crew chief Tom Hallion was not pleased with sticky substance inside the palm of Santiago’s glove and tossed him.

His use of substance holds a 10-game suspension with pay. Sounds like a vacation really. It’s unclear if the former White Sox pitcher will be suspended.

Santiago told the media that after further testing that “all this science stuff” will prove he’s right.

Kind of dumb to be (potentially) suspended for this for 10-games. At least this season. Next year is a different story though. All baseball fans can think about with this new enforcement is the slap of the wrist the Houston Astros got.

Do better, MLB.
