Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel attempted to apologize to Yu Darvish for his racially insensitive actions, but the Dodgers pitcher didn't feel as if it was necessary. "I told him you don’t have to do that," Darvish said of a possible meeting, per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. Gurriel will be suspended five games at the start of the 2018 season for seemingly mocking Darvish's Japanese heritage in the dugout during Game 3 of the World Series. "I didn’t mean to do anything offensive," Gurriel said after the game, per J.P Hoornstra of the Orange County Register. "If [Darvish] feels offended, I want to apologize to him." While Darvish initially said his opponent "disrespected people all around the world," the veteran pitcher seemed to put an end to the controversy with a message on his Twitter account.
