Baseball : Giants’ prospect ejected for arguing robot umpire’s call

-

- Advertisment -

The Arizona Fall League is undergoing experimental technology for what is essentially an electronic-based strike zone and balls and strikes, which Major League Baseball has decided to name the automated ball-strike (ABS) system.

The technology is being used for games at Salt River Fields, where Heyward and his teammates on the Scottsdale Scorpions are playing their home games this autumn.

The ABS takes the help of a software to decide whether a pitch went past through the strike zone, which is then auto-adjusted for the vertical distance of each player.

Home plate umpires spot a receiver and an earpiece so that when the ABS tells them of a ball or strike call, they can convey that to the field.

Heyward looked disappointed with the decision that led to his strikeout and video replay showed he has a valid reason to be stunned.

The opposing catcher took part with zero effort to frame a pitch that was at first set up to be directed at or slightly off the outside corner.

San Francisco Giants prodigy Jacob Heyward was sent off from Arizona Fall League game on Tuesday for debarring after taking a called strike three.

It’s not something new and it won’t be the last time a player is taken our for displaying frustrations over balls and strikes, but Heyward may have made a lot of news with his ejection.

Heyward, 24, was chosen by the Giants in the 24th round of the 2016 MLB Draft and was seen in much of the season with Double-A Richmond before getting a late-season call-up to Triple-A Sacramento.

Heyward hit .211 with a .710 OPS whilst being part of the regular season, but had a major role in securing the Sacramento River Cats a win in the Triple-A Championship.

Heyward’s name was likely to be in the news once more this offseason as the Giants must choose whether to save him from the Rule 5 Draft and put him to their 40-man roster or leave him as it is, which appears to be a bold risk.
