NEW YORK (AP) -Jim Thome of the Chicago White Sox has been suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed sum by Major League Baseball for ``inappropriate actions'' during a game against Detroit last week. He was ejected for arguing a call after he struck out.
Thome's suspension was to be served Tuesday, when the White Sox were home against Oakland. If he appeals, he will be able to play until the appeals process is completed.
Thome was ejected in the fifth inning last Friday following a third-strike call by plate umpire James Hoye. Replays showed the 3-2 pitch borderline low.
Thome, the designated hitter, headed toward first thinking he had walked. He then turned and began arguing with Hoye. Manager Ozzie Guillen had to separate Thome from the umpire.
