Report: Tim Anderson suspended 6 games, José Ramírez 3 for White Sox-Guardians brawl

Aug 7, 2023

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson has been suspended six games and Cleveland Guardians third baseman José Ramírez has been suspended three games for instigating a brawl between the two teams on Saturday, ESPN's Jesse Rogers reports.

MLB also handed one-game suspensions to Guardians pitcher Emmanuel Clase, manager Terry Francona and coach Mike Sarbaugh and to White Sox manager Pedro Grifol, per the report.

The brawl took place during the sixth inning of Chicago's 7-4 win, when Ramírez hit a double off of White Sox starter Michael Kopech and slid into second head-first between Anderson's legs as Anderson covered the base. Ramírez's head made contact with Anderson's groin during the slide, and the two exchanged words as Ramírez stood up. Then chaos ensued.
