CC Sabathia suspended for start of 2019 over altercation with Rays

CC Sabathia

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has avoided any postseason punishment, but he will be serving a suspension next season.

Sabathia retaliated against Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jesus Sucre after a pitch was thrown near the head of Yankee catcher Austin Romine on Thursday. Sabathia hit Sucre and was immediately ejected, and he’s been suspended for the first five games of 2019 as a result, pending an appeal.

Sabathia cost himself a good amount of cash with his actions, too, but not as part of a fine. Despite the repercussions, he’ll probably still feel it was worth it.
