James Loney suspended for bumping umpire

Rays first baseman James Loney has been suspended one game for bumping the home plate umpire after being ejected from Saturday’s game.

He’s appealing the suspension, which means Loney will be available to play in the meantime.

Here’s video of the incident, so you can judge for yourself:

Loney is hitting just .260 with four homers and a .652 OPS in 71 games and the Rays owe him $8 million next season.
