What did Astros pitcher Josh Zeid spray on his arms?

I don’t want to open up a whole can of green, gooey conspiracy worms here but…

What the heck is Josh Zeid spraying on his arms in this GIF?

This is from Wednesday’s Blue Jays-Astros game in Toronto. Zeid can clearly be seen taking a bottle of something from his bag and spraying it on his arms.

Zeid then proceeded to warm up in the bullpen. He came on in the sixth and got out of a jam by striking out Edwin Encarnacion, but gave up a home run to Brett Lawrie in the seventh.

Again, not to be all suspicious and internet conspiracy-ish but, what is in that spray bottle?

It’s probably just some innocent substance and not something that Zeid would use to load the ball up.

But we’ve got to ask anyway. Can’t be too careful.

    This is similar to the Clay Buchholz thing last season. Pitchers like to use spray on sunscreen on their arms. Combined with rosin, it makes for a nice tacky grip on the ball. Whether that is right or not…well….
