Tampa Bay Rays jerseys left hander cheap David Price jersey was fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Boston Red Sox jerseys slugger David Ortiz with a pitch last week, according to reports Wednesday.
The Boston Globe originally reported Price’s fine and that he was not suspended.
Price, 28, hit Ortiz in the first inning. Both benches were warned and Price hit outfielder Mike Carp with a pitch later in the game, but it was deemed unintentional.
Red Sox jerseys right hander cheap Brandon Workman jersey responded by throwing behind third baseman cheap Evan Longoria jersey, up around his head. Workman was suspended six games because it happened after the warning and was close to the head. He is appealing the suspension and will start Wednesday night as scheduled.
Ortiz fumed that Workman was suspended while Price got away with just a fine.
“We’re the ones getting fines and suspensions,” Ortiz said Tuesday. “I guess the rules aren’t for everyone. I don’t think what they’re doing is fair. I think the rules should be for everybody. We didn’t start this up. I didn’t hit nobody. Workman didn’t hit anybody in the first inning. (Price) did.
“I thought the rule was for everybody. I thought that the minute you figure baseball jerseys form china someone hit someone on purpose the rule says it right there you’re going to follow up with it. In this case, it seems they ain’t.
“Workman throws one pitch behind Longoria, he got thrown out of the game. So (what) are you telling me? We haven’t hit nobody. But the guy who threw a pitch behind Longoria and he got thrown out of the game? So where we at?”
Ortiz ripped Price following the game last week, going as far as calling him “a little girl.”
TROUT INJURY NOT SERIOUS
Tests showed Wednesday that Los Angeles Angels jerseys centre fielder cheap Mike Trout jersey has inflammation in his back but no structural damage.
Trout left Tuesday night’s game against the Houston Astros jerseys because of stiffness after missing two weekend games. He did not start Wednesday night against the Astros jerseys, but he is hoping to return Thursday. “I’ll see how I feel tomorrow. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow.”

GONZO GOES ON DL
The Colorado Rockies jerseys placed outfielder cheap Carlos Gonzalez jersey on the 15 day disabled list Wednesday.
