What actions led to Aroldis Chapman of the Pittsburgh Pirates receiving a suspension?

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Aroldis Chapman faced consequences for his behavior during Monday’s game against the New York Mets, receiving a fine and a two-game suspension for what was termed as “inappropriate actions.”

Chapman engaged in a dispute with umpire Edwin Moscoso, leading to his ejection from the game during the eighth inning of the Pirates’ 6-3 loss to the Mets.

The specific nature of Chapman’s actions was not disclosed, but Pirates manager Derek Shelton indicated that it involved remarks displeasing to the umpire. Chapman has the opportunity to contest the suspension through an appeal process.

If he opts not to appeal, the suspension will take effect on Friday, coinciding with the Pirates’ scheduled game against the Boston Red Sox.
