Suárez stepped on the mound in the 8th inning with a 4-0 lead in the home game against the Miami Marlins held at Petco Park, California on the 24th (Korean time), but was ejected after a foreign object was detected. According to MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), Suárez insisted that he only use a certain amount of sunscreen. The referee thought differently. Referee Todd Tichener, who announced the ejection, said in the report, “We are routinely inspecting for foreign substances.” “A sticky substance was observed on the side of Suarez’s gloved hand. All four referees gathered and judged the substance to be too sticky. He was dismissed,” he explained.

Suarez continued to complain of resentment. MLB.com said, ‘Suarez was surprised by the exit. He said he didn’t use any foreign substances that could help increase pitching spin,’ he said. Through an interpreter, Suárez protested, “I put on sunscreen like any other daytime game, and the referee saw it. That’s the decisive reason for kicking me off the field. I didn’t use any illegal or banned substances.” A player who is ejected for using a foreign substance is subject to a 10-game suspension. If you’re unhappy with the decision, you can appeal, but MLB.com said, “Suarez has not yet decided whether to appeal.”

The substance that caused the stickiness is unclear. MLB.com said, ‘Sunscreen is not a banned substance. The same goes for the rosin routinely given to pitchers. However, if you mix the two properly, you can create a sticky substance that meets the exit criteria.’

Venezuela-born Suárez started with the bullpen in 13 games this season, recording an average ERA of 4.73 with 2 wins, 2 losses and 4 holds. After playing in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) from 2016 to 2021, he wore a San Diego uniform in December 2021. In November of last year, he signed a multi-year contract for 4 years and a total of 56 million dollars (74 billion won).
