MLB Ejection 147 - DJ Reyburn (3; Brian Anderson)

2B Umpire DJ Reyburn ejected Marlins RF Brian Anderson (out call/runner forced off base; QOCN) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the #Dodgers-#Marlins game. With one out and one on (R2), Marlins batter Brian Anderson hit a 2-2 fastball from Dodgers pitcher Dustin May on a line drive to left fielder Joey Gallo, who threw to second baseman Chris Taylor as Marlins batter-runner Anderson arrived at second base, ruled safe initially by 2B Umpire Reyburn before being ruled out for being tagged while off the base on a potential overslide. Replays indicate that during Anderson's slide into second base, he was forced or pushed off the base by the glove of Taylor in what appeared to be a pushing action excessive to a hard tag, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is DJ Reyburn (70)'s 3rd ejection of the 2021 MLB regular season.
Official Baseball Rule 5.06(a)(1): "A runner acquires the right to an unoccupied base when they touch it before they are out. They are then entitled to it until they are put out, or forced to vacate it for another runner legally entitled to that base."
MLB Umpire Manual Interpretation for Rule 5.06(a)(1) (Runner Pushed Off Base): "If in the judgment of an umpire, a runner is pushed or forced off a base by a fielder, intentionally or unintentionally, at which the runner would have otherwise been called safe, the umpire has the authority and discretion under the circumstances to return the runner to the base they were forced off following the conclusion of the play."

This is the 147th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is the 47th player ejection of 2022. Prior to ejection, Anderson was 1-2 in the contest.
This is Miami's 9th ejection of 2022, 1st in the NL East (MIA 9; WAS 4; ATL, PHI 2; NYM 1).
