Benches Clear in Toronto-Tampa Bay Clash

In a heated incident during Saturday's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays, pitcher Genesis Cabrera of the Blue Jays shoved Jose Caballero of the Rays, resulting in a benches-clearing incident. The seventh-inning incident stemmed from a run-scoring bunt single by Caballero, followed by an exchange of words and a shove by Cabrera. The Blue Jays' pitcher was ejected for his actions.

Ramirez Disciplined for Intentional Hit-by-Pitch

New York Mets pitcher Yohan Ramirez was suspended for intentionally throwing at Rhys Hoskins of the Milwaukee Brewers during the seventh inning of their Saturday game. Ramirez's first pitch to Hoskins sailed behind the batter, who reacted angrily. The reliever claimed he did not intend to hit Hoskins, but was ejected by plate umpire Lance Barrett.

Manager and Players Suspended

Both Cabrera and Ramirez were suspended for three games by Major League Baseball, while Mets manager Carlos Mendoza received a one-game suspension for his role in Ramirez's actions. All three individuals were also fined undisclosed amounts.

Appeals Pending

Both pitchers have appealed their suspensions, which will remain on hold until the appeals process is complete. Mendoza served his suspension during the Mets' series finale against the Brewers.
