Following the bench-clearing brawl between the Kansas City Royals & Chicago White Sox on Thursday, Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was dealt the harshest punishment, as the 23-year-old received a seven-game suspension from the league Saturday. Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez was suspended five games, while outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera got two-game suspensions. White Sox starters Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija were each given five-game suspensions.


Thursday’s incident began when Ventura appeared to shout something toward White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton after the pitcher fielded a ball and threw to first to record an out. As the benches cleared, the teams began pushing and shoving, with several punches thrown and it was on from there!
