Houston Astros starter Ronel Blanco has been suspended 10 games after his ejection for having a sticky substance in his glove Tuesday night. 

MLB announced the suspension, which was expected, Wednesday, and it included an undisclosed fine for violating the league’s strict policy on sticky substances for pitchers. 

Blanco will not appeal MLB’s suspension, GM Dana Brown said via The Athletic.

Blanco was pitching against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday when umpires examined his glove prior to the start of the fourth inning. The sticky substance was apparently one of the most egregious violations they’ve seen in a glove since the mandate came from the league to start checking pitchers at the start of, and in between, innings.

Astros manager Joe Espada told reporters after his team’s 2-1 victory over its AL West foe Blanco had a mixture of sweat and rosin in his glove, according to The Athletic.

Pitchers are only allowed to apply rosin on the pitching hand. 

The 30-year-old has been somewhat of a sensation for the Astros since joining the team’s starting rotation. He threw the league’s first no-hitter of the season in his first start April 1 against the Toronto Blue Jays.
