MLB issues discipline following Marlins-Brewers

Posted: Updated:

Miami Marlins pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has received a three-game suspension and Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers has been fined for their actions after Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton got hit in the face by a pitch from Fiers.

Major League Baseball announced the discipline Friday. The league said in a statement that DeSclafani's suspension and an undisclosed fine were for intentionally throwing a pitch at Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez with a warning in place in the sixth inning of Thursday's game.

Fiers received an undisclosed fine for what the league said were "his actions which contributed to the benches clearing."

Stanton sustained multiple facial fractures, dental damage and cuts that needed stitches after being struck in the fifth inning in the 4-2 loss.
