For the second time in the last six weeks, Miguel Cabrera got tossed mid at-bat Monday, this time getting ejected by Brian Gorman in the first inning for arguing that he was hit by a pitch.
MLB.com has the video, though it’s not yet embeddable.
Cabrera took a Chris Sale slider off his back knee, but Gorman ruled that he swung at the ball. After Cabrera fouled off the next pitch, he looked back at Gorman and said something, leading to the ejection. Jim Leyland was also tossed after coming out to defend his player.
Ramon Santiago replaced Cabrera with an 0-2 count and promptly grounded out.
Regardless of whether Cabrera’s ejection was warranted (and it didn’t really seem to be), Leyland should face some sort of additional penalty for both staying on the field and in the dugout for an obscene amount of time after the ejection, further delaying the game,
