Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Rodolfo Castro was suspended for one game and fined on Tuesday for having his cell phone fly out of his pocket while running the bases last week, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Castro violated Major League Baseball’s electronic device policy. He is going to appeal that suspension, meaning that Castro will be able to play against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.

Castro was sliding into third base during the Pirates’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks last week when his phone flew out of his back pocket — which made for one of the stranger moments in the league so far this season.
