Minor leaguer who threw a ball into a brawl suspended 30 games

Earlier this week we told you about West Michigan Whitecaps reliever¬†Eduardo Jimenez, who came onto an on-field brawl with a baseball in his hand and flung it into the scrum. At the time we suspected that he’d get a hefty suspension. Yep, he did. MLive.com reports that he has received a 30-game suspension.

That’s a bit more than Hunter Strickland got for throwing at Bryce Harper. I’m guessing that Jimenez didn’t reach 98 m.p.h. with his throw, though.
