Arizona Diamondback's pitcher, Caleb Smith got ejected from the Wednesday, August 18, game against the Phillies for allegedly violating MLB's foreign substance rules. Now sports enthusiasts want to know more about him and his net worth.

The left-hander was allegedly examined for substances after completing 2.2 innings of relief and the umpires ultimately seized his glove. The breach could come with a 10-game suspension, although that will not start immediately if Smith chooses to appeal. When Smith was stopped he argued but was ejected after the umpiring crew gathered and examined his glove. Smith was replaced by Tyler Clippard in the ninth inning, who closed out the Diamondbacks’ 4-2 victory. Seattle Mariners' Hector Santiago is the only player who got suspended from baseball this season for using an illegal foreign substance on June 29, 2021. He appealed the suspension and lost.

I stand by my player.” However, according to Bob Nightengale, Lovullo did acknowledge that there were a couple of “hot spots” on Smith’s glove and tweeted, "#Dbacks manager Torey Lovullo says he stands by his player, Caleb Smith, but acknowledges there were a couple of "hot spots'' on the glove.
