Manfred: MLB considers guidelines for racist taunts

Manfred: MLB considers guidelines for racist taunts

"After all that drama, we're looking forward to getting back in that flow again".

Orioles: Showalter said RHP Chris Tillman, bothered by shoulder tendinitis since spring training, "threw the ball well" in what's expected to be his final rehab start on Tuesday. Wilson last pitched on Friday but he has gone only three and four innings in his two starts. "Eighteen, 19 games is a lot of games over the course of a 162-game season". "We're in the process of gathering information right now". On April 21, Machado spiked Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia with a slide.

This week, Manny Machado didn't back down about how he feels about the Red Sox. Jonathan Schoop had three hits for the Orioles.

Machado hit a 466-foot drive over the Green Monster during a five-run fourth inning. He then set off on a slow trot around the bases, drawing boos from the crowd.

"Go look at my home runs. I bleed for them".

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was tossed later, after arguing a called strike in the fifth.

Manfred said Major League Baseball is surveying all 30 teams to see how they handle such situations "as a prelude to giving consideration to some more industry wide guidelines in this area".

The fireworks came a day after Boston's Mookie Betts was hit by a pitch from Baltimore's Dylan Bundy. The ripple effect of that action forced Orioles manager Buck Showaler to use Thursday's scheduled starter, Ubaldo Jimenez, in relief and left the team needing a fresh arm for Thursday's finale. "My office has been in contact with the Red Sox, and the club has made it clear that they will not tolerate this inexcusable behavior". "Unfortunately, the bottom line is 4-5 is not what you're looking to do on the homestand against good teams". "I felt it was different than the normal I-hit-your-guy, you-hit-my-guy". "That kind of stemmed that". The Red Sox confirmed that the left-hander will be on the mound on Sunday against the Twins. LHP David Price threw three innings of a simulated game and hit 95 miles per hour with his last pitch, according to baseball boss Dave Dombrowski.

Before this series, Manny Machado had just four career home runs at Fenway Park. LHP Wade Miley (1-1) faces righty Miguel Gonzalez.

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up three runs for the Sox.
