Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was unhappy about the suspensions, and lack thereof, handed down after Detroit's brawl with the New York Yankees on Thursday.

Cabrera appeared to take a couple of swings at Romine, and the two ended up on the ground as players from both teams spilled onto the field.

The fallout from the Yankees' brawl with the Tigers continued on Friday with Major League Baseball issuing punishments for the players and coaches involved.

Another seven individuals were fined for their actions in the melee.

Torre, of course, is the point man for such decisions now, in his role as MLB's "Chief Officer", and just as he gave Strickland more games than Harper - though the disparity should have been wider - he correctly put the onus for Thursday's ugliness on Cabrera. Detroit, however, have a losing record of 55 71, keeping them out of the playoff race for now.

They all got fines as well. "Once I got Detroit going to their dugout and NY going to their dugout, then I informed him that he was ran". He believed Fulmer should've been warned, but he was also frustrated that home-plate umpire Carlos Torres wasn't at home plate when Cabrera shoved Sanchez.

"Things got out of control pretty quickly there", Sanchez said. "I know they need me so it's not a good feeling". In the moment of everything, instinct takes over.

Not fined or suspended was Dellin Betances, who hit Tigers catcher James McCann in the helmet with a 98-mph fastball in the seventh inning after warnings had been given. Alex Wilson, Manager Brad Ausmus were later ejected.

The Detroit Tigers have scheduled Jordan Zimmermann for Wednesday's start against the visiting New York Yankees. He said he expected to receive a hefty suspension, but was angry that the Yankees were not also punished.

Kahnle was ejected for throwing behind Cabrera after Sanchez was plunked by Fulmer. New York's Tommy Kahnle then threw behind Miguel Cabrera, which led to an immediate ejection. "C'mon, why didn't you say you threw?"

Wilson - who hit Todd Frazier in the eighth inning and admitted to doing so intentionally afterwards - was suspended for, "intentionally throwing a pitch at Todd Frazier of the Yankees while warnings were in place for both sides".

Wilson essentially acknowledged he drilled Frazier on goal to "take care" of his teammates and "make a stand".
