Marlins’ Dan Straily, Don Mattingly Reportedly Suspended

Published

on

Miami Marlins pitcher Dan Straily and manager Don Mattingly have reportedly been suspended for 5 games and 1 game, respectively, for Straily hitting San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey with a pitch during Thursday’s game.

Both benches were warned when Giants starter Dereck Rodriguez hit Marlins center fielder Lewis Brinson in the 2nd inning of action. Straily was ejected when hitting Posey.

“I think everybody knows if you give one warning after one guy then you’re asking for trouble out of the blue,” Mattingly said, (h/t ESPN).

“I’m sure Rodriguez didn’t mean to hit Brinson and Straily didn’t mean to hit Buster. If they thought there was going to be something going on they should have given both teams warnings before the game. If they thought it was intentional on their part, [Rodriguez] should have been out of the game.”

Straily will appeal the suspension, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.
