LOS ANGELES — Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish said Tuesday he was surprised by how much of a controversy Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel’s offensive gesture has created since Game 3.

“I didn’t think it was going to be this big of a deal,” he said of his initial reaction through his interpreter.

Darvish said Gurriel contacted the Dodgers after Game 3 to offer him an apology. But Darvish told him that was not necessary.

“After the game, he contacted us and said, ‘Hey, I’d like to meet you in person and apologize,’” Darvish said Tuesday. “But I told him, ‘Hey, you don’t have to do that because you made a comment, and, like, I’m not that mad.’
