New York Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes apologized and deactivated his Twitter account Monday after old tweets he wrote about a decade ago surfaced online Sunday. 

The tweets included the use of racial slurs, and Cortes said he wrote them when he was a teenager. 

“I felt like it wasn’t the right message that I wanted to send out when I was 17 years old,” the left-hander said before Monday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles. “Those happened 10 years ago. I deactivated my Twitter to clean stuff up.”
