Adam Eaton was handed a one-game suspension and fine from Major League Baseball for his aggressive actions and for inciting a bench clearing incident with Indians Thursday. Eaton was going to serve the suspension Tuesday but will appeal.

The Indians’ Jake Bauers and Cesar Hernandez were also fined.

Eaton shoved Indians shortstop Andres Gimenez after getting called out trying to stretch a single into a double. Eaton, who said Gimenez lifted his arm off the base, was not ejected.

“From my viewpoint, I slid in and I stopped. And once I stopped my slide, I’m safe,” Eaton said after that game. “It happened pretty quick, but my arm gets lifted up and pushed off the bag. Once that happened, I said, ‘Bill [Miller, second-base umpire’, I just got pushed off the bag,’ hopefully trying to get him to change his mind. But of course he didn’t.

“Then things kind of escalated a little bit there. Not that I wanted that. ... I let the emotions kind of get the best of me there just because I felt like any time you get pushed off the bag when you are safe, it’s a little frustrating. I kind of let emotions get the best of me.”
