Cabrera and Yohan Ramírez get suspended for three games

Pitchers Génesis Yohan Ramírez of the New York Mets and Cabrera of Toronto were both suspended for three games.

Major League Baseball on Sunday suspended pitchers Génesis Cabrera of the Toronto Blue Jays and Yohan Ramírez of the New York Mets for three games apiece for actions they took in different games.

Additionally, Michael Hill, senior vice president for on-field operations at Major League Baseball, said that Carlos Mendoza, manager of the Mets, was suspended for one game due to Ramírez’s actions.

During Toronto’s 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday, Cabrera was fined for on-field activities that resulted in a benches-clearing altercation in the bottom of the seventh inning.

After purposefully throwing at Rhys Hoskins of Milwaukee during the seventh inning of the Mets’ 7-6 loss on Saturday, Ramirez received a suspension.

The suspensions have been put on hold while the appeals process is ongoing because both pitchers filed appeals.

In the third game of his major league managerial tenure, Sunday’s series finale between the Mets and Milwaukee, marked Mendoza’s serving of his suspension.

A fine was imposed on all three.

At the conclusion of the seventh inning in St. Petersburg, Florida, benches cleared after Cabrera and José Caballero argued and Caballero shoved the Tampa Bay shortstop.

After third baseman Justin Turner threw an error, Caballero advanced around the bases and scored a run on a bunt single. Backing up third base, Cabrera got into a verbal altercation with Caballero after the infielder was tagged out at third for the game’s last out. Caballero was then shoved. Cabrera left the room.

A day after a rough slide to second base led to a fight with Jeff McNeil of the Mets, Hoskins singled and scored twice in a three-run first inning, then went on to hit a two-run home run in the third and scored on a Luis Severino balk in the fifth.

In the seventh inning, Ramírez threw his first pitch to Hoskins far beyond him. The right-hander dropped his bat and gave him a scowl as the reliever sprinted to catch the ball before it smashed off the backstop. Lance Barrett, the plate umpire, dismissed Ramírez, who later stated that he had not been throwing at Hoskins on purpose.
