But that’s not all — now MLB’s honchos are getting involved:
The umpiring crew last night confiscated Peralta’s glove in order to use it as evidence for a review by Major League Baseball. The glove was shipped, via FedEx, from Washington to New York for league officials to examine. MLB’s determination will decide Peralta’s fate.
The typical suspension for pitchers found guilty of using a foreign substance is 10 days, but because the league is still awaiting the glove, no ruling has been made.
Insert FedEx joke here.
Anyway, it could take a day or two for a ruling to come down, so Peralta will be eligible to play in Wednesday’s game — presumably, with a new, pristine glove.
