MLB issues discipline for Cards, Reds

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Major League Baseball has issued discipline to five players and the two managers as a result of the on-field incident that occurred in the bottom of the first inning of Tuesday's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Bob Watson, Vice President of On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball says Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto has received a seven-game suspension and an undisclosed fine.  Unless appealed, Cueto is scheduled to begin serving his suspension on Friday, when the Reds are scheduled to host the Florida Marlins.  If appealed, the discipline issued to Cueto will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

Reds manager Dusty Baker and Cardinals manager Tony La Russa each have received two-game suspensions and undisclosed fines as a result of their actions on Tuesday.  Baker will serve the two-game suspension on Friday and Saturday as the Reds host the Marlins.  La Russa will serve the two-game suspension on Friday and Saturday as the Cardinals host the Chicago Cubs.

Four players have been fined undisclosed amounts as a result of the incident: Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips and pitcher Russ Springer, currently a disabled list player who came onto the field during the incident; and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina and pitcher Chris Carpenter.
