MLB suspends Josh Donaldson over Tim Anderson’s “Jackie” remark

Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson has been suspended for one game and will be fined for using racist language towards star White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, according to The Post’s Jon Heyman.

Anderson revealed after Saturday’s game that Donaldson had called him “Jackie,” which he said was a racial reference to Jackie Robinson. Donaldson insisted he was only joking and that it was a reference to Anderson calling himself “today’s Jackie Robinson” in a Sport Illustrated feature.

The league officially joined a majority of the baseball world in not buying Donaldson’s apology when they presented the suspension Monday.

Donaldson will appeal the suspension. He was also included in the COVID-19 IL earlier in the day.
