Blue Jays suspend Kevin Pillar two games for using homophobic slur

Pillar issued an apology for his actions after the game, although he didn’t say specifically what he said.

Despite the club suspension, Pillar could be facing more punishment from Major League Baseball, which saw enough to open an investigation, according to Sportsnet. The report says MLB’s look into the issue isn’t just for the fight, but specifically whether Pillar used a slur in his exchange with Motte.

Pillar’s suspension will force him to miss Thursday’s series finale with the Braves in Atlanta, a game which many expect fallout to occur from Wednesday in which Braves star Freddie Freeman broke his wrist on a HBP and Jose Bautista flipped his bat after a homer even though Atlanta was up five runs.

The Red Sox and David Price will huddle Thursday to determine the next step for the rehabbing left-hander, the day after a mixed-bag outing at Triple-A.

For the second straight start in his comeback from a forearm injury sustained in spring training, Price struggled with his control, although he did show a 92- to 96-mph fastball.

Price said he felt good after his outing. I would say [he] burnt through his pitch count, PawSox manager Kevin Boles said (via the Boston Globe). I thought the stuff was actually pretty good. It was just command and location, which is to be expected when he’s coming off an injury.

His line against Louisville: six runs (three earned) on seven hits, four strikeouts, a walk and a wild pitch through only 3 2/3 innings on 89 pitches.
