White Sox manager Pedro Grifol was ejected for arguing a strike call vs. the Guardians on Tuesday

Tommy Pham struck out on a questionable strike call that appeared to, however, touch the bottom corner of the plate. Pham was upset, visibly shouting at home plate umpire Emil Jimenez.

Grifol didn't run out to talk to Jimenez until he was ejected. He must've said something from the dugout that upset him.

The ejection marked the third of the season for Grifol and the eighth of his career.
