Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper found himself in the middle of multiple run-ins with home plate umpire Laz Diaz during Friday night's game against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park Bill Melton Jersey , and Washington skipper Dave Martinez wants MLB to look into the situation."I'm not going to make any comments on balls and strikes there, but umpires are supposed to be nonconfrontational. They're supposed to uphold the peace on the baseball field," Martinez said. "For me, I think MLB needs to take a look at that. That's all I'm going to say. I've known Laz for a very long time. I'm not going to throw anybody under the bus, but we're in a pivotal moment of the game http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-robin-ventura-jersey , and he's saying things to Harp, and I thought that was uncalled for."The first incident was rather unusual, as Diaz stepped out from behind home in the bottom of the fifth inning and said something to the Nationals dugout while pointing at Harper, who had struck out swinging in the top of the frame, in center. As Tom Gatto of Sporting News pointed out Early Wynn Jersey , the MASN broadcast picked up some of what Diaz said in the exchange."He needs to cut it out," Diaz said, per Gatto. "You need to talk to him. You need to talk to him. ... You take him or I will, I guarantee you that. ... That's OK, I'll take care of it. ... I'll take care of it."Diaz did not eject Harper??ut that was not the last of the confrontations.When the 2015 National League MVP stepped to the plate in the top of the seventh Avisail Garcia Jersey , he took issue with Diaz calling a strike on a pitch that appeared to be well outside. As the two exchanged words, Martinez came out to protect his player. Neither Harper nor Martinez was tossed.Harper finished 1-for-5 with one RBI and the one strikeout. Afterward, he discussed what happened."That's my biggest thing this year is I don't want to get tossed. So, I think I go to the edge and then kinda quiet up," Harper said.Harper also said Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers heard what Diaz said.The Braves won the game http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-frank-thomas-jersey , 10-5, but chief baseball operator Joe Torre and Co. will certainly have to take a look at what went down on the field in Atlanta on Friday night. NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees have acquired Adeiny Hechavarria in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates, bringing in a veteran infielder to back up injured shortstop Didi Gregorius.New York is sending a player to be named or cash to Pittsburgh for the 29-year-old Hechavarria, who is batting .254 with four homers and 29 RBIs in 76 games with the Rays and Pirates this season. As part of the deal, the Pirates will send New York $863 Bobby Jenks Jersey ,709 to cover most of the $951,613 remaining in Hechavarria’s $5.9 million salary.The trade was completed just before Friday’s deadline for traded players to be eligible for the postseason. The Yankees are in position for the first AL wild card.Gregorius has been out since Aug. 20 with a bruised left heel. He could come off the disabled list this weekend.Hechavarria is a .255 career hitter over seven seasons with four teams. He has played mostly at shortstop with spot duty at second base and third base.To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated left-hander Ryan Bollinger for assignment.
