Breaking MLB news, courtesy of the Associated Press:

Chicago White Sox star shortstop Tim Anderson accused Yankees hitter Josh Donaldson of making a racist remark by calling him Jackie Robinson during Saturday’s game against New York.

“He just made a disrespectful comment,” said Anderson, who is black. “Basically, it was trying to call me Jackie Robinson. Like ‘What’s up, Jackie?’”

“I don’t think it was necessary,” Anderson added after New York’s 7-5 win at Yankee Stadium.

Major League Baseball is investigating the incident and speaking with those involved.

White Sox manager Tony La Russa called Donaldson’s comment “racist,” adding, “This is as strong as it gets.”

When asked how he heard it, Anderson agreed with La Russa’s charge, saying, “Right away, same direction, yes.”

Anderson, an all-star who is among the leading black voices in baseball, told Sports Illustrated in 2019, “I kind of feel like Jackie Robinson today … because he changed the game, and I feel like I have to.” I’ll show you where I have to change the game.”

Donaldson said at the start of the game, “I called him Jackie.” The white baller also said he’s “joked around” with Anderson in the past, using the same reference, and mentioned the Sports Illustrated interview.

Robinson broke the MLB color barrier in 1947. Every team in the major leagues has retired their No. 42 to honor the struggle, sacrifice and social impact he had on the game and beyond.

“I don’t mean any term that tries to be racist by some fact,” Donaldson said. “Obviously he thought it was disrespectful,” he said. “And look, if he did, I apologize. No way was I trying to, and that’s what happened.”

Donaldson busted with Anderson in Chicago on May 13 after a rough day, and Anderson responded with a shove, resulting in the benches and bullpens being cleared. Donaldson said Saturday that he was “trying to defuse any lingering tensions” as the players crossed paths early in the game.

Anderson said Donaldson made a “Jackie” hint in an early inning: “I spared him that time, and then it happened again.”

Later, in the third inning, Donaldson rounded second base after the final and began chatting with Anderson as the teams left the field. Donaldson was escorted to the dugout by Yankees manager Aaron Boone and Anderson was escorted away by third base coach Joe McEwing.

In the fifth, White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal rose from his crouch and confronted Donaldson as he approached the plate.

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

The barking continued as aides ran from the bullpens and the benches were emptied, with La Russa — a member of Baseball’s Hall of Fame — also yelling at Donaldson.

Anderson continued to yell at Donaldson while being restrained by White Sox slugger José Abreu and infielder Gavin Sheets. After a few minutes, the referees issued warnings to both sides and Donaldson struck out.

“This game went through a period where a lot of those comments were meant to be, and I think we’re way past that,” Grandal said. “And it’s just unacceptable. I just thought it would be a low blow and I want to make sure I stand behind my team. Under no circumstances should you say something like that.”

Boone said of the incident, “I know…some people are talking about it. I need to get to the bottom of this.”

Last season with Minnesota, Donaldson got into trouble with the White Sox when he seemingly yelled “sticky no more” — a reference to substances pitchers use to control the ball — after hitting a homer on Chicago ace Lucas Giolito.

The White Sox and Yankees were scheduled to play in a doubleheader for the last time in the regular season on Sunday.

DJ LeMahieu capped a five-run second inning for the Yankees by hitting his second career grand slam and tying Dallas Keuchel (2-4).

Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a single run, Donaldson had an RBI groundout and Anthony Rizzo lifted a sacrificial fly as the Yankees improved to 29-10. It’s their best 39-game start since the team opened 30-9 in 1998 and the third-best start in team history.

Abreu hit a three-run homer in front of Nestor Cortes. The White Sox lost to the Yankees for the 10th time in 12 games. Anderson singled twice and equaled three.

Cortes, who started with an MLB-best 1.35 ERA among qualifying pitchers, allowed three carries and six hits in five innings. It was the 17th straight start in which he allowed three runs or fewer – the second-longest streak in team history.

Clay Holmes made four outs for his fourth save.
