CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been suspended and fined for intentionally throwing at and hitting New York Yankee Kevin Youkilis at Tuesday’s game.
According to a release from the Major League Baseball’s Office of the Commissioner, Carrasco has received an eight-game suspension and an undisclosed fine. The incident happened at the top of the fourth inning at the April 9 game at Progressive Field.
Unless appealed, Carrasco is scheduled to begin serving his suspension during Cleveland’s home game tonight against the Chicago White Sox, according to the release.
If Carrasco files an appeal, the discipline issued to him will “be held in abeyance until the process is complete,” according to the release.
