Major League Baseball has launched an investigation into Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar’s possible use of a homophobic slur directed toward Atlanta Braves reliever Jason Motte.

Pillar allegedly called Motte a “faggot” on Wednesday night during the seventh inning of Toronto’s 8-4 loss to Atlanta.

The Star reports:

Motte, the first pitcher to come out of the bullpen after starter Mike Foltynewicz’s six-inning outing, threw Pillar a quick pitch, striking him out and ending the inning with the Jays down by five runs. It is at this point that television replays appear to show a frustrated Pillar saying “faggot” to Motte.

A spokesperson for MLB confirmed via email on Thursday morning that it was looking into the allegations.
