Jimenez Suspended 5 Games For Hitting Tulowitzki

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cleveland Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez has been suspended for five games and fined by Major League Baseball for intentionally throwing at Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki during a spring training game.

The penalty was announced Monday by MLB.

Jimenez will serve his suspension during the first five games of the season unless he asks the players’ association to appeal the decision by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr.

Before the penalty was announced, Jimenez said he wasn’t going to apologize to Tulowitzki after hitting his former Rockies teammate on the left elbow Sunday.

    Why apologize?

    He must have read about Payton and the Saints and feels if they can be bad sports–he can be so also.

    Should have been 50 days, just like for dope, because he is one.
