Yankees' Sanchez suspended 4 games, Romine gets 2 for brawl

Posted August 27, 2017

Miguel Cabrera and Gary Sanchez headline a list of four players and one coach who have received suspensions for their roles in the brawl that marred Thursday's Major League Baseball game between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.

Veteran all-star slugger Cabrera squared off with Romine at home plate in the most dramatic fight of the day, was annoyed that 6-foot-7, 282-pound Yankees player Aaron Judge was not punished. He said he expected to receive a hefty suspension, but was angry that the Yankees were not also punished.

Wilson and Ausmus were ejected in the eighth inning after Wilson hit Todd Frazier around the thigh with a pitch, prompting the benches to clear for a third time.

Girardi, bench coach Rob Thompson, Kahnle, Brett Gardner and Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias were fined for their roles in the brawl, while Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier and first baseman Garrett Cooper were fined for entering the field while on the disabled list.

Both Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and Yankees manager Joe Girardi were ejected in the contest as well. Unless appealed, all suspensions are scheduled to be effective tonight, when the Yankees are to host the Seattle Mariners and the Tigers are to visit the Chicago White Sox.

Romine, Kahnle, Betances, Girardi, Thomson, Cabrera, Wilson and Ausmus were tossed from the game. The Detroit offense managed eight hits with Nicholas Castellanos leaving the yard twice and driving in three while Ian Kinsler recorded an RBI. "Fortunately for me I know where my pitches are going, and I hit a guy in the leg today to take care of my teammates and protect them". Fulmer did not receive a warning, and he also faced no punishment on Friday.

In any case, home plate umpire Carlos Torres seemed to understand it wasn't a goal pitch, and didn't toss Betances until crew chief Dana DeMuth stepped in, probably because he recognized the Tigers were frothing at the mouth at that point. I think that one probably shocked me the most. "He tried to hit me, go after me on the floor", Cabrera said. (Judge) is going to get away (with it)?

Fulmer looked like he might be hurt after throwing that pitch, and he was checked by the trainer before staying in the game.

Ausmus said his suspension is linked to Wilson's.
