We all knew a big fine and suspension were coming Rougned Odor’s way, and now there are reports that MLB has finally settled on a punishment. MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers’ second baseman will be suspended for eight games, and Yahoo’s Jeff Passan adds that he will be fined $5,000.
That seems like... a fair punishment? I don’t know, it’s kind of hard to judge given the fact that nobody in baseball every actually punches anybody. Anyway, don’t expect eight games to turn Odor into a chastened man.
