MLB Ejections 044-45 - Jim Reynolds (3-4; MIN x2)

HP Umpire Jim Reynolds ejected Twins pitcher Tyler Duffey (throwing at White Sox batter Yermin Mercedes) and manager Rocco Baldelli (arguing Duffey's ejection) in the top of the 7th inning of the #WhiteSox-#Twins game. With one out and none on, Mercedes took a first-pitch fastball from Duffey for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located behind Mercedes' legs, the call was irrecusable*; warnings had not previously been issued and Mercedes was ejected pursuant to Official Baseball Rule 6.09(c)(9)(A) Intentionally Pitch at the Batter.* At the time of the ejection, the White Sox were leading, 4-2. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

These are Jim Reynolds (77)'s 3rd and 4th ejections of 2021.
Jim Reynolds now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 QOCU] = 10).
Crew Chief Jim Reynolds now has 5 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 2 Irrecusable Calls = 5).
*OBR 6.09(c)(9): "If, in the umpire’s judgment, such a violation occurs, the umpire may elect either to: (A) Expel the pitcher, or the manager and the pitcher, from the game, or (B) may warn the pitcher and the manager of both teams that another such pitch will result in the immediate expulsion of that pitcher (or a replacement) and the manager."
