Major League Baseball Hands Down Suspensions In Royals/White Sox Incident

Three individuals have received suspensions for their roles in the bench-clearing incident between the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox during the bottom of the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Kansas City Royals baseball can be heard on Classic Hits 106.7 & 1530 AM KQNK in Northwest Kansas & Southwest Nebraska all season long. Visit KQNK.com for the schedule.

Royals pitcher Brad Keller has received a five-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch at Tim Anderson of the White Sox. Anderson has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his conduct after the benches cleared. The suspensions of Keller and Anderson are subject to appeal. If either player elects to file an appeal, then the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria has also received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his aggressive actions during the incident. Renteria’s suspension is to be served tonight, when the White Sox will continue their road series against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
