Punishments handed down for Yankees-Tigers brawl

New York Yankees: Playoff Pitching Scenario

The New York Yankees could be without Gary Sanchez for a long time, with rumors that the slugger will be facing a hefty suspension after delivering two separate sucker punches during the team's brawl with the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Cabrera and Romine were ejected from the game.

The New York Yankees battle the Detroit Tigers in an MLB baseball tilt on Wednesday. All four players said they were appealing and remain eligible until the process is complete.

In addition to the suspensions came a slew of fines - and not just for the above-named individuals. The Detroit offense managed eight hits with Nicholas Castellanos leaving the yard twice and driving in three while Ian Kinsler recorded an RBI. Detroit, however, have a losing record of 55 71, keeping them out of the playoff race for now.

The MLB suspended Cabrera for inciting the first bench-clearing incident and for fighting. Cabrera claimed Judge tried to punch him while he was on the ground.

"I'm sure there are going to be suspensions on both sides", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after a 10-6 loss. "And it's not what you necessarily want because of the consequences but I think a lot of times it can". And the pitcher who threw at me, he's going to get away (with it) too, with no suspension? He believed Fulmer should've been warned, but he was also frustrated that home-plate umpire Carlos Torres wasn't at home plate when Cabrera shoved Sanchez.




"If you can't see that Fulmer clearly hit Sanchez on objective, there's something wrong", Girardi said. "I know they need me so it's not a good feeling". Sanchez later appeared to take a swing at someone at the bottom of the pile. See the people go after me when I was on the floor.

Betances was tossed after hitting James McCann in the helmet with a pitch an inning after the first major brawl.

Cabrera, Sanchez, Wilson, Romine and Ausmus were also fined, as were Yankees manager Joe Girardi, Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and Yankees pitcher Tommy Kahnle.

The breakdown began in the fifth inning, when Tigers starter Michael Fulmer plunked Sanchez with a pitch, an inning after Sanchez had hit his fourth home run of the series.

All five players suspended were given fines that were not disclosed.
