Josh Hader will have more than just opposing batters to focus on as the second half of the season resumes. League will consider statement tomorrow.
He locked his account and after the game he said the posts were from seven years ago and stemmed from immaturity when he was 17.
"Like I said before, I was young, immature and stupid. I said some things that are inexcusable", Hader said, while noting that the tweets do not reflect his current beliefs.
Hader issued an apology in front of hoards of media after the game, saying that that comments don't "reflect on who [he] is as a person today".
And this explanation especially wasn't a good one: "When you're a kid, you tweet what's on your mind". You always get in trouble for things you said when you're younger. I'm deeply sorry for what I've said and what has been going on.
Hader is not the first professional athlete to have damaging old tweets discovered while appearing on a big stage.
Members of Hader's family, who were in the stands, removed jerseys they were wearing that had his name on the back and replaced them with generic jerseys.

It would also see them equal the recent feat of their women's team , who earned bronze at the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015. Belgium played superbly this World Cup but unfortunately for them they came up short against an equally impressive French side.
There's no excuse for the tweets, and it caught up with Hader on Tuesday night. "I was 17 years old". For me, I'm moving on from it.
Hader, who allowed four hits including a home run to Seattle's Jean Segura, talked to Brewers teammate Lorenzo Cain in the clubhouse after the NL's 8-6 loss. "He was young. We all say some insane stuff when we're young".
"I hate gay people", read one tweet.
Hader said he had not spoken to family members and, when asked if that would be a hard conversation, responded, "I was young, immature and stupid".
"But we'll move on from it - he's a great guy and a great teammate". "We'll move on from it, for sure".
"I'm completely and utterly embarrassed and feel frightful to have put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organizion in this position".
"We have been in contact with Josh and he is fully aware of the severity of the situation related to his social media comments, regardless of the timeline of his posts", Brewers GM David Stearns said in a statement Wednesday. "I'm fine. Everybody will be OK".
