White Sox right fielder Jermaine Dye received a two-game suspension and was fined an undisclosed amount for his actions in Wednesday’s 4-0 loss at Cleveland.
In the sixth inning of the game, Dye took a called third strike with the bases loaded and two outs. He flipped his bat and slammed his batting helmet to the ground before being ejected by home-plate umpire Mike DiMuro.
Dye’s helmet bounced up and hit DiMuro.
Unless he appeals the suspension, Dye will miss the first two games of the Sox’ series at Toronto, which begins tonight.
