Pitchers Daniel Cabrera of the Baltimore Orioles and Edwar Ramirez of the New York Yankees have been disciplined for separate incidents that occurred during this week's series between the two Clubs at Yankee Stadium. Bob Watson, Vice President of On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.
Cabrera has been suspended for six games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of New York's Alex Rodriguez during the bottom of the eighth inning of Tuesday's game. Unless appealed, Cabrera is scheduled to begin serving his suspension during Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners. If appealed, his suspension will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
Ramirez has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Baltimore's Kevin Millar during the top of the seventh inning of Wednesday's game. Ramirez has elected to file an appeal; thus, the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
