Genesis Cabrera admits he overreacted during Jose Caballero brawl

Published March 31, 2024 at 9:55

Genesis Cabrera and Jose Caballero found themselves in a heated altercation during Saturday's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays. In the end, Caballero got the last laugh as his Rays came through with a 5-1 win.

The altercation started when Caballero was rounding the bases and ran towards third. Although he was tagged out, he ended up running into Cabrera. It was an innocent accident, although Cabrera was not happy. This led to a shoving match where the Cabrera put his hands in Caballero's face. The two players were separated and the benches eventually cleared.

After the game, Cabrera spoke to reporters about what happened. In the end, he admitted to overreacting. Moreover, he claimed that he has no issues with Caballero. As for a potential suspension, he is hopeful that won't happen. It should be noted that he was ejected from the game after shoving Caballero.

"Cabrera on incident with Caballero: 'I think kind of overreact a little bit. I mean, he kind of looked at me and I just reacted.' Cabrera said there's no history there with Caballero. He's not worried about a potential suspension."

Yesterday marked a second loss in a row for the Toronto Blue Jays. After beating the Rays 8-2 on Opening Day, the Jays have lost to the Rays by scores of 8-2 and 5-1. Their batters have gone cold, and it remains to be seen if they will be able to get back on track. On Sunday, the team will play the Rays in their fourth and final game of the opening weekend series.

If you want to watch the Blue Jays take on the Rays today, you will be able to do so as of 1:40 PM Eastern Standard Time. This game will be broadcast on Sportsnet in Canada. After this game, the Blue Jays will head to Houston for a three-game series with the Astros.
