He’ll be fined by the league, though

Trevor Bauer threw a ball very far in a very angry manner Sunday night and he won’t be suspended for it. He will be fined, though.

Major League Baseball today announced that Trevor Bauer would be fined an undisclosed amount of money in relation to an incident Sunday in which a frustrated Bauer hurled a ball over the center field wall at Kauffman Stadium (roughly 350 feet from the pitcher’s mound).

The Indians themselves have not issued any disciplinary action, but manager Terry Francona is apparently considering it ... maybe? It’s hard to tell with Tito sometimes.

It’s hard to tell if he’s joking here because the internet still hasn’t invented sarcasm font, but Antonetti and Chernoff are undoubtedly busy at the deadline. I also doubt the Indians want to suspend one of their best pitchers in the midst of a playoff push because he threw a ball, and most people have already moved on from it.
