The Chicago White Sox will be without one of their relievers for at least three games following his actions in Friday's 10-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
Major League Baseball suspended right-hander Jimmy Cordero for three games and fined him an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras with a pitch.

Cordero plunked Contreras in the top of the seventh inning, likely as a response to Contreras' bat flip following a home run off Dylan Cease in the third inning.
White Sox manager Rick Renteria received a one-game ban and a fine as a result of Cordero's actions. Renteria will serve his suspension on Saturday against the Cubs.
