Angel Hernandez is not the favorite umpire of many players and coaches in MLB, and he has already upset one manager in spring training.

Hernandez ejected Astros skipper A.J. Hinch in the first inning of Houston’s matchup with the Cardinals on Friday.

Hinch was so mad he had to be led away from Hernandez by George Springer and bench coach Alex Cintron.

The 44-year-old manager also took an interesting route on his way out.

Instead of leaving the field through the dugout and out of the locker room, he walked through the left field fence to make his exit.

Hinch detailed the incident after the game.

He said Hernandez told him once he made “four bad calls a game.” According to the Houston Chronicle, Hinch told Hernandez after a call in the first, “You’ve used all four.”

Hernandez then tossed him.

“To throw me out of a spring training game is pretty ridiculous,” Hinch said.

He continued: “As it escalated, he said some things that were condescending and unprofessional…we’ll let the league know.”
