From the Majors.net:
Rays’ reliever Joel Peralta was set to enter Tuesday night’s game
against the Nationals trying to maintain a slim 5-4 lead. Peralta though
didn’t last long, in fact he didn’t make the first pitch as umpires
ejected him after inspecting his glove and finding a foreign substance on it.
That foreign substance was later revealed to be pine tar according
the MLB Networks JB Long. Long also later tweeted the following…
#Rays Maddon calling out Nats Davey Johnson for checking
Peralta’s glove. First said cowardly, then upped to “[p-word] move,”
Apparently, Joel Peralta has played for the Washinton Nationals and for their pitching coach in the minors.
Look for a long suspension, but I am sure he is not the only pitcher/catcher who throws junk (spitballs, or with a foreign substance)
