Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred announced on Saturday that he was suspending Gurriel without pay for five games at the start of next season, and said he chose to delay the suspension because he didn't think it would be fair to penalize Gurriel's teammates by suspending the first baseman - who is hitting.340 this postseason - from any World Series games.
Gurriel started a huge second inning for the Houston Astros launching a solo home run to left field off Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish.
After hitting a home run off Darvish to put the Astros ahead of Los Angeles early in Friday's Game Three, the 33-year-old Cuban was caught on camera using his hands to make a slanted-eye gesture while in the dugout.
Yuli Gurriel will have to sit out for making a racist gesture toward Yu Darvish - but not during the World Series.
Darvish was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Iranian father.
With his impending suspension deferred to 2018, Gurriel will stick in his usual spot in the order against the Dodgers for Game 4.
"I feel like, of course, Houston has Asian fans and Japanese fans, and Asian fans live all over the place", Darvish said. Gurriel may be punished, including a possible suspension during the World Series.
In a statement, an Major League Baseball spokesman said: "We are aware of the situation and the Commissioner intends to speak with the player tomorrow". "That includes both you and I".
Friday night should have been one of unbridled joy for Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel, but instead it saw him apologizing and facing a suspension. "He expressed remorse. I met with him today".
During the five-minute interview, Gurriel seemed surprised at the attention he was receiving over the incident.
Manfred faces a delicate balance in deciding how to discipline Gurriel.
After the game, he posted a conciliatory tweet that read in part, "No one is ideal".
"If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for making", Darvish wrote.
