Toronto Blue Jays Suspends Kevin Pillar After Calling Atlanta Braves Pitcher A “F*ggot”
The Toronto Blue Jays have suspended center fielder Kevin Pillar for using of a homophobic slur directed at Atlanta Braves reliever Jason Motte.
Pillar was handed a two game suspension for calling Motte a “faggot” during last night’s match against the Atlanta Braves, according to reports.
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.
