New York Yankees starter Michael Pineda was ejected in last night’s game against the Boston Red Sox after a suspicious substance was spotted on his neck.

After officials investigated and discovered pine tar on the pitcher’s neck, Pineda was ejected from the game.

His punishment came in the form of a 10-game suspension.

He’ll likely miss 1-2 starts and will be eligible to return May 5 against the LA Angels.

Pineda has since apologized for his actions.
