Ubaldo Jimenez Receives 5-Game Suspension For Throwing At Troy Tulowitzki

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez plunked Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki during a game on Sunday, and the two began to approach each other and exchange words, which prompted both benches to clear. The incident was reviewed by Major League Baseball, and on Monday they announced that Jimenez has been suspended for five games and will have to pay a fine.

Jimenez, formerly a pitcher with the Rockies, denied any malicious intent in interviews with media members afterward, but clearly MLB disagreed.
