    Brewers pitcher Will Smith was ejected from Thursday's game against the Braves after a foreign substance was discovered on his arm.

    Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez called upon the officials to examine Smith, and crew chief Jim Joyce ejected the pitcher after checking for the substance. Smith was replaced by Neal Cotts, who immediately surrendered an RBI single.

    "It was chilly and kind of windy," Smith said after the game, per the Braves Radio Network. "I had sunscreen rosin on my arm. Just forgot to wipe it off before I went out and pitched."

    Smith, who didn't complete the at-bat of the second batter he faced on Thursday after hitting the first batter with a pitch, came into the game with a 2.13 ERA and 18:6 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings. He was visibly angry and appeared to say something to the Braves bench before he left.

    "I'm a competitor," Smith said, per the Journal Sentinel. "You want to stay in the game and pitch. It was a big situation. I was pissed I got thrown out."

    It was sunscreen rosin and Ryan Braun has never felt a needle prick.

    Any one of them will give you 2 to 3 inches drop on your curve ball.

    Only when he’s in the dugout. Apparently he wipes it off when he goes out in the sun....
