INTERESTING STUFF THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY
****Detroit Tigers prospect Eduardo Jimenez has received a 30-game suspension for his role on a Sunday brawl between the West Michigan Whitecaps and the Dayton Dragons in the Midwest League. Four other players were also suspended but Jimenez’s sentence was the harshest punishment by far.
