Will Cintron be fined?
If you are dropped from an MLB game, as the Houston Astros beat coach Alex Cintron, you must leave the playing area and dugout.
The league president who punishes you if you are fined or not is responsible for the crime committed in this case.
After instigating a mass brawl with Ramon Laureano of the Oakland Athletics, Cintron was banned for 20 games in 2020.
Cintron had tense Laureano after complaining of being hit by pitches and then immediately hid behind his players when the outfielder made for him.
