Four players suspended in Yanks-Tigers fracas | MLB.com

Sometimes it seems like they spin a wheel.

Miguel Cabrera was suspended for seven games and fined an undisclosed amount for inciting a benches-clearing incident and fighting with Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who was suspended for two games for fighting and throwing punches. Gary Sanchez received a four-game suspension for fighting and throwing punches in the ensuing fracas.

“I’m not going to feel good about that,” Sanchez said before Friday’s Yankees game against the Mariners in New York. “That’s four games that I’m not going to be able to help the team, and I know that they’re going to need me. It’s not a good feeling.”

After Austin Romine and Miguel Cabrera get into a benches-clearing physical altercation, tensions continued between the Tigers and Yankees

Tigers reliever Alex Wilson received a four-game suspension for later intentionally throwing at Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier after warnings had been issued. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus received an automatic one-game suspension as a result of Wilson’s actions.

Joe West has been suspended three games for calling Adrian Beltre a ‘complainer’

Joe West, the umpire everybody loves to have an opinion about, has been suspended three games for calling Adrian Beltre a complainer during an interview with USA Today’s Bob Nightengale all the way back in June. The Los Angeles Times’ Bill Shaikin first reported the news.

The full exchange involved West having to decide who the biggest complainer in the league is and replying,

It’s got to be Adrian Beltre. Every pitch you call that’s a strike, he says, “Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!” I had a game with him recently and the pitch was right down the middle. He tells me, “that ball is outside.”

I told him, “You may be a great ballplayer, but you’re the worst umpire in the league. You stink.”

Interestingly, and in a departure from how suspensions work for players or managers, West’s comments were made weeks ago but a suspension was handed down only last week. The three game suspension started with Tuesday’s games.

West Michigan reliever handed 30-game ban for role in MWL fight

Tigers prospect Eduardo Jimenez received a 30-game suspension this week when the Midwest League issued punishments to five players for their roles in Sunday’s brawl.

Jimenez, a 22-year-old reliever, received the biggest suspension handed out by the league after he ran onto the field and threw a ball at an opposing player during a melee between Class A West Michigan and Dayton on May 28. The Whitecaps said his punishment is retroactive to May 29.

Whitecaps shortstop Daniel Pinero was suspended five games and pitcher Spenser Watkins received a one-game ban, which he is set to serve on June 10. Pinero’s suspension begins tonight and the team said he’s expected back on June 8.

Dayton’s Jose Siri was issued a three-game suspension and pitcher Wennington Romero is slated to sit for four games, according to MLive.com. Neither the league or the Dragons have confirmed those bans.

Carpenter out of lineup serving one-game suspension

Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter will sit out Tuesday’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays with a one-game suspension.

Carpenter received the suspension after making contact with home plate umpire John Tumpane in Sunday’s contest at the Milwaukee Brewers. In that game, Carpenter and manager Mike Matheny were ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the seventh inning.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Steve Delabar suspended 80 games for positive PEDs test

Indians pitcher Steve Delabar received an 80-game ban from Major League Baseball on Monday for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Delabar, 33, tested positive for ostarine, a muscle-building (or maintaining) agent that is consumed orally.

Two others were also suspended. Mariners reliever Jonathan Aro drew 50 games, while former Cubs righty Jeffry Hernandez (currently unsigned) got 80 games after testing positive for Stanozolol.

Report: Mets’ Jeurys Familia receives 15-game suspension

According to a Wednesday morning report from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, New York Mets’ closer Jeurys Familia has finally learned his fate. After previously meeting with Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday, Familia has now been handed a 15-game suspension to start the 2017 regular season…..

The 27-year-old was originally charged with simple assault back in October following an arrest at his home. Police found Familia’s wife with both scratches on her chest and a bruise on her cheek while the charges were ultimately dropped as the case was dismissed by a New Jersey judge.

Nonetheless, the league has a no tolerance policy regarding domestic violence as Major League Baseball’s investigation did not end until Wednesday afternoon.
