MLB Ejection 121 - Carlos Torres (3; Kendrys Morales)

HP Umpire Carlos Torres ejected Royals DH Kendrys Morales for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 9th inning of the Royals-Rays game. With none out and none on, Morales took a 1-1 changeup from Rays pitcher Dylan Floro for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and at the knees (px -.951, pz 1.624 [sz_bot 1.5]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 3-2. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This ejection was not officially reported during Tuesday's game when it occurred, but Torres filed a report following the event, including an allegation that Morales returned to field after his ejection. For this, MLB issued Morales a one-game suspension for returning to the field.

This is Carlos Torres (37)'s third ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Carlos Torres now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 3 AAA - 1 Penalty - 4 QOCN = 4).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has -2 points in Crew Division (-2 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = -2).

This is the 121st ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 57th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Morales was 0-4 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is Kansas City's 5th ejection of 2016, T-2nd in the AL Central (CWS 6; DET, KC, MIN 5; CLE 1).
This is Kendrys Morales' first career MLB ejection.
