Yes, in major Baseball an umpire can eject a pitcher. Last year as an example, a Yankee pitcher was ejected because the home plate umpire checked to find pine tar on the pitchers belt. This is illegal for a pitcher to have any foreign substance on his body or uniform or cap. Another example is, the umpire's opinion, a pitcher has hit too many batters after being warned. That's an ejection as well. Additionally, any player or manage or a pitcher who argues balls and strikes called by the home plate umpire is an automatic ejection.

What does a baseball umpire's era mean?

I must say when I saw that statistic last night it was the first time I had heard of it. But the way I understand it, and umpire's ERA stands for the number of earned runs scored in a game while the umpire is behind home plate. A higher umpire ERA generally means that the umpire favors the hitter by having a smaller strike zone. A lower umpire ERA generally means the umpire favors the pitcher by having a larger strike zone.
