White Sox's Tim Anderson gets three-game suspension for making contact with umpire, appeals ruling

Aug 1, 2022

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson was given a three-game suspension for making contact with an umpire during Friday night’s 7-3 loss against the Oakland Athletics.

The suspension will be on hold as Anderson appeals the ruling, which came out just before Saturday’s game against Oakland where he had two singles.

Anderson was ejected in the seventh inning after arguing with home plate umpire Nick Mahrley over a strike call that appeared to be high. After being thrown out of the game, Anderson approached the umpire and appeared to make contact with him.
