‘Scuffle’ Tim Anderson confirms 5G suspension, will miss 19-23 days

The disciplinary action against Tim Anderson (30, Chicago White Sox) for his role in a recent on-field brawl has been finalized.

ESPN reported on Monday (Aug. 18) that Anderson has been suspended for five games following an appeal.

Anderson’s punishment will take effect on April 19 against the Colorado Rockies. As a result, Anderson will be out of action from April 19 against Colorado to April 23 against the Seattle Mariners.

The suspension stems from a bench-clearing incident that occurred during a game between the two teams on June 6 at Cleveland’s home field, Progressive Field.

At the time, Cleveland batter Jose Ramirez collided with Chicago White Sox shortstop Anderson while sliding head-first into second base after a hit.

Ramirez then criticized Anderson’s play while covering the bases, which eventually escalated into a brawl, during which Ramirez knocked Anderson down with a right hook.

The result was the ejection of Ramirez, Anderson, both players, the managers of both teams, Cleveland pitcher Immanuel Clouse and third base coach Mike Sabo.

The suspensions focused on those ejected. First, Anderson was suspended for six games. Ramirez, three games.

Anderson’s punishment is higher because he was deemed responsible for the scuffle. It was determined that Anderson pushed Ramirez, who was on second base.

The players appealed, and Ramirez has already served a two-game suspension, while Anderson’s five-game suspension was finalized.

In addition, Chicago White Sox pitcher Michael Kopeck and Cleveland outfielder Gabriel Arias were fined rather than suspended.

White Sox manager Pedro Griffol, Cleveland manager Terry Francona, and coaches Clouseau and Sabo, who were ejected together, all received one-game suspensions.스포츠토토

Meanwhile, Anderson is in the midst of his worst stretch of the season. Through 17 games, he’s batting .238 with one home run, 21 RBIs, a .285 slugging percentage and a .568 OPS in 92 games this season.
