Genesis Cabrera has been suspended for this many games

Published March 31, 2024 at 3:59 PM

Genesis Cabrera got into a heated confrontation with Jose Caballero on Saturday. This subsequently led to a bench-clearing altercation and an ejection. One day later, Major League Baseball has laid down the law as it pertains to the Blue Jays star.

Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 5-1. Overall, this was the Blue Jays' second loss in a row. It was not a great outing for their bats, although it was even worse for Cabrera. As fans have already seen, Caballero ran into Cabrera by accident. From there, Cabrera and Caballero got into a shoving match. It all ended with Cabrera shoving Caballero in the face.

After the game, Cabrera admitted that he was out of line. He noted that it was an overreaction and that he has no underlying issues with Caballero. Furthermore, he said that he doesn't think a suspension would be warranted. Well, Major League Baseball is in disagreement with Cabrera. Today, they hit him with a three-game suspension and a fine.

"Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Génesis Cabrera has received a three-game suspension and a fine for his role in a bench-clearing incident in a 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday."

Cabrera and the Blue Jays are looking to appeal the suspension, and a decision will be made this week. As for the fine, the full amount has not been disclosed. Either way, it was yet another stroke of bad luck for a Blue Jays team that has struggled since their win on Opening Day.

The Blue Jays are currently in the midst of playing the Rays at Tropicana Field. This is the fourth and final game of their opening weekend series. If you are in Canada and want to catch the game, you can watch it over on Sportsnet.
