Whereas MLB is investigating an incident between umpire C.B. Bucknor and St. Louis Cardinals supervisor Oliver Marmol, the 2 of them seem to have settled their dispute.

In accordance with ESPN, Marmol and Bucknor shook arms when lineup playing cards had been exchanged earlier than Monday’s spring coaching recreation in Jupiter, Florida.

“I used to be raised and introduced up on this group to do precisely what I did right now,” Marmol mentioned. “You go to house plate. You hand the lineup card and also you shake the arms of the 4 umpires who’re working that recreation.”

After Marmol mentioned Bucknor had refused the gesture previous to Saturday’s recreation, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported that MLB was investigating the matter. Marmol added that the opposite umpires within the recreation, Ron Kulpa, Angel Hernandez and Carlos Torres, all shook his hand and apologized for Bucknor’s actions.

Following Saturday’s tense alternate, Marmol mentioned of Bucknor, “I do not assume he is good at his job, and it simply exhibits an absence of sophistication as a person.”

The 2 of them have dangerous blood stemming from when Bucknor ejected Marmol throughout a recreation final season. The supervisor, who was arguing a strike name towards third baseman Nolan Arenado, reportedly yelled that Bucknor’s time in MLB was coming to an finish, and the umpire yelled again that Marmol had simply gotten to the large leagues.

Marmol, 36, was in his first season as Cardinals supervisor final 12 months after serving as their first base coach from 2017-18 and bench coach from 2019-21. The 60-year-old umpire has been within the majors since 1996.
