Donaldson explained he jokingly called Anderson “재키” 과거에.

My meaning of that is not any term trying to be racist by any fact of the matter,” 도널드슨이 말했다. “명백하게, he deemed it disrespectful … and look, if he did, I apologize. That’s not what I was trying to do by any manner and that’s what happened.

Hendriks added: “My feelings toward the individual in question are pretty well-documented in the fact that we don’t get along. The fact I have now spoken to four separate clubhouses he’s been in and as a whole, none of them get along. So trying to whip out that narrative is complete and utter bullst.

The White Sox closer said Donaldson trying to say he and Anderson had an inside joke washorse s—.”

Anderson said Saturday Donaldson made a “재키” reference in an early inning before the pair started jawing in the third. Things appeared to escalate in the fifth when White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal confronted Donaldson as Donaldson approached the plate.

Believe me, you don’t want me to tell you guys what I told him,” Grandal told reporters.

Anderson later shouted at Donaldson, prompting some of his White Sox teammates to hold him back.

This game went through a period in time where a lot of those comments were meant, and I think we’re way past that,” Grandal added. “And it’s just unacceptable. I just thought it was a low blow, and I want to make sure I’ve got my team’s back. There’s no way that you’re allowed to say something like that.”‘

Major League Baseball is investigating the incident.
