At the point when the 31-year-old Gallegos did likewise with two out in the inning, Barrett got a towel from the White Sox burrow and cleaned down the reliever’s arm once more.
“They can do rosin on their tossing hand and arm, however not on their glove hand. Thus any time we see a pitcher do that we simply have him clear it off and let him know he can’t make it happen,” team boss Alfonso Marquez said.
I couldn’t say whether there was a language hindrance or not. I’m not saying it was. Yet, when he did it a subsequent time, which has happened to us previously, we simply go out there and remind him, hello, you can’t do that.
With warm up area catcher Kleininger Teran going about as his interpreter, Gallegos said Barrett visited the second time after somebody shouted something from the home hole. Be that as it may, Marquez said it didn’t have anything to do with Chicago, and White Sox director Pedro Grifol additionally said his group didn’t request that the umpires actually look at Gallegos.
“I didn’t actually ask about it. I understood what the umpire was doing,” Grifol said. “He wasn’t attempting to specialist the ball or any such thing. It’s rosin. Umpire sees it on the arm, he can take it off assuming that he needs to. I’m expecting. I don’t have the foggiest idea or not. I didn’t go inquire.”
Subsequent to recording the last out of the eighth, Gallegos scowled at the White Sox hole as he advanced off the field. The right-hander likewise motioned as though he was clearing off his arms.
Gallegos said through the interpreter that he went to the sack a subsequent time “without knowing, without recalling. Something that everyone does, something ordinary.” He likewise said he definitely disliked the subsequent visit, particularly in a game at the White Sox, and afterward motioned toward his head.
Gallegos was requested by then-umpire Joe West to switch covers during the Cardinals’ 4-0 triumph at the White Sox on May 26, 2021. West said one more umpire saw a substance on the edge of the pitcher’s cap, and Gallegos let him know it was sunscreen.
Thinking his player was unjustifiably singled out, then, at that point Cardinals chief Mike Shildt got catapulted during a vivified contention.
