Major League Baseball announced Friday that the Washington Nationals left-hander, Sean Nolin, has been suspended for five games and fined an undisclosed amount after hitting him with a pitch. to Freddie Freeman on Wednesday’s game between Washington and Atlanta.
In addition, the manager of the capital, Puerto Rican Dave Martínez, was suspended for a game and fined an undisclosed amount. Nolin has chosen to appeal the sanction, so his suspension will take effect when a final verdict is reached in his case.
Just in the first inning of the game between the two teams last Wednesday, Nolin threw a fastball down Freeman’s back, hitting him with a ball to the hip at 91 miles per hour, which raised the spirits of the game and the pitcher was ejected.
This pitch was most likely in retaliation because in the game the day before, Juan Soto was hit by a Will Smith fastball in the ribs at 94 mph, which left Soto very sore.
