NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen apologized Wednesday for using a slur during a locker-room conversation with Daisuke Matsuzaka’s interpreter.
The slur was overheard by Wall Street Journal reporter Stu Woo.
“I apologize for the thoughtless remarks that I made yesterday in the clubhouse,” Warthen said in a statement released by the team. “They were a poor attempt at humor but were wrong and inappropriate in any setting. I am very sorry.”
