White Sox pitcher suspended for throwing at Willson Contreras


by -

Chicago White Sox pitcher Jimmy Cordero has received a three-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally hitting Willson Contreras of the Chicago Cubs with a pitch during the top of the seventh inning of Friday night’s game at Guaranteed Rate Field. Chris Young, Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine as a result of Cordero’s intentional actions. Renteria will serve his suspension today, when these two Clubs continue their series in Chicago. In addition, White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper has received an undisclosed fine.

Unless appealed, Cordero may begin to serve his three-game suspension today. However, if Cordero elects to appeal, then the discipline will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
