Diaz entered in the ninth inning with the game 5-2 in favor of the Mets. Before starting the episode, the Naguabeno was inspected by the umpires, who decided to remove him from the match because his right hand, and glove, were sticky.

Diaz and Mets manager Carlos Mendoza tried to reverse the officials’ decision without success.

The 30-year-old Puerto Rican could face an automatic 10-day suspension for the incident.

Relievers Drew Smith and Jake Diekman recorded the final three outs for the Mets’ victory.
