Mather spoke about foreign-born players' ability to speak English, the team's player personnel decisions and financial situation and about tactics the team used to limit young prospects' service time -- a maneuver that allows the team to retain control over the player for longer.

Stanton said he was "extremely disappointed" when he learned of Mather's comments to the Rotary Club.

On Sunday night, Mather issued an apology for his words, according to MLB.com.

"There is no excuse for my behavior, and I take full responsibility for my terrible lapse in judgement (sic)."

Mather has been part of the Mariners organization since 1996 when he joined the team as its executive vice president of finance and ballpark operations, according to MLB.

In a statement, the MLBPA called the Mather video "a highly disturbing yet critically important window into how players are genuinely viewed by management" and said the comments provided "an unfiltered look into Club thinking."

"It is offensive, and it is not surprising that fans and others around the game are offended as well," the MLBPA's statement read.

Mather also faced controversy in 2018

This is not the first time that Mather has had to apologize for his actions while employed as a Mariners executive.

I've worked to become a better co-worker, a better leader, and a better person."

The Mariners said at the time that after an investigation into the allegations against Mather, the organization "imposed appropriate discipline, management and sensitivity training, and other corrective actions."

The Mariners also revealed that the team had "made amends" to the female employees involved.

"Kevin learned from the experience and has since been an outstanding manager and executive," Stanton said via a statement in 2018.
