Miguel Sano has been suspended for one game and fined by Major League Baseball for what the league termed "aggressive actions" that caused benches to clear between the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers last weekend.
Detroit's JaCoby Jones was hit in the face by a pitch from Justin Haley in the third inning on Saturday. Two innings later, Matthew Boyd threw behind Sano, who yelled out at the mound. James McCann intervened and appeared to put his mitt in the face of Sano, who reacted immediately with a right hand to McCann's mask.
The players' association appealed, allowing Sano to continue playing until the appeal is heard and decided.
