Mariners left-handed reliever Hector Santiago was ejected following a foreign substance inspection in the fifth inning of Sunday's game. He's the first player to be found guilty of violating the new foreign substance policies implemented by MLB last week.
Umpires took Santiago's glove following the inspection and promptly ejected the southpaw. He had gone 2.1 innings in the effort, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. He also struck out four batters in the process. In addition to the ejection, Santiago will presumably receive a 10-game suspension, as MLB warned in its memo earlier this month. Santiago cannot be replaced on the roster while he serves his penalty.
