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.
