Right handed pitcher Edgmer Escalona was suspended for 10 days by his team, Leones del Caracas, as a disciplinary actions due to his attitude towards a managerial decision PRO Rumors has learned. The Rockies reliever didn't take well a decision his manager in Venezuela, Tim Teufel made. The team is not willing to take this kind of behavior from anybody says Victor David Melo of El Universal (Venezuelan newspaper). “Escalona behaved in a way we don't want out ballplayers to behave. That's why he'll be suspended for ten days without payment,” said team president, Luis Avila. “I can't tell you how he took the disciplinary action, but he didn't take well the game situation.” The right hander was taken out of the game after allowing two singles and walking one batter in the top of the ninth and not recording an out. According to team executives his attitude wasn't appropriate after being taken out of the game. “In this team there's no room to tolerate indiscipline and we wanted to clear this up so nobody get surprised when they don't see him in next week's roster,” added Avila. Escalona had a 1.75 ERA in 25.2 innings for the Rockies in 2011. Image by cliff1066™ under the Creative Commons License.
