Atlanta Braves' Newcomb apologizes for awful tweets in 2011 and 2012
With Newcomb in the midst of a no-hit bid that ended with two outs in the ninth inning Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Twitter user @NatsSquid dug up Newcomb's old tweets.
"(I) meant nothing by it. I didn't mean to offend anybody and I'll make sure it doesn't happen again."
Major League Baseball responded to Hader's old tweets by sending him sensitivity training but not issuing a suspension.
Newcomb, 25, gave up one hit and one run with one walk and eight strikeouts in a 4-1 win over the Dodgers on Sunday. He improved to 10-5 with a 3.23 ERA in 21 starts.
As a rookie last year, Newcomb went 4-9 with a 4.32 ERA in 19 starts.
