Ranger prospect Engel Beltre is in some trouble.
According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the 21-year-old outfielder has been suspended indefinitely by the Double-A Texas League for throwing a trash can at a group of fans on Tuesday night in San Antonio.
Double-A Frisco, the team that Beltre plays for, had a three-run homer overturned by umpires in the club’s 6-5 loss. Ejections followed after that decision was made and the opposing fans in the stands were probably engaging in some heavy mocking as emotions in the dugout Frisco got elevated.
Beltre’s suspension will likely last 10 days. The mid-level prospect is batting .253/.286/.316 this season with zero home runs, five RBI and three stolen bases through 18 games for the Frisco RoughRiders.
