"He handled this in as classy a way as a player possibly could something as negative as this", Manfred said of Darvish. "Since we are living such a wonderful world, let's stay positive and move forward instead of focusing on anger".
Darvish is of Japanese and Iranian descent. The four-time All-Star played professionally in Japan from 2005-11 before joining the Texas Rangers in 2012. He was traded to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline. 'Appropriately, Yuli has apologised for his gesture.
