LOS ANGELES (AP) — by Major League Baseball for kicking Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar in the NL Championship Series.MLB fined Machado an undisclosed amount Wednesday http://www.redsfanproshop.com/…..abo-jersey , a day after the baserunning incident caused the benches to clear at Dodger Stadium and prompted Brewers MVP candidate Christian Yelich to call Machado a “dirty player.”“I don’t think we’re too concerned about any other teams’ comments about our players,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday before Game 5. “I know speaking for Manny, he’s preparing to help us win. It’s really not at the forefront of our mind.”Machado was running to first on a grounder in the 10th inning of Game 4, and Aguilar left his right foot partly across the base for a moment after catching the ball. Already out, Machado brought his left foot forward and kicked Aguilar in the back of the leg.“He’s a player that has a history of those types of incidents,” Yelich said. “One time is an accident. Repeated over and over and over again, you’re just a dirty player. It’s a dirty play by a dirty player.”Brewers manager Craig Counsell wasn’t concerned the incident would distract from his team’s focus in the best-of-seven series.“You say to yourself, ‘Two games from the World Series.’ That’s all you’ve got to say,” Counsell said. “The other stuff just washes away Billy Hamilton Jersey , man. That’s meaningless to me.”Some have questioned Machado’s sportsmanship since he tossed his bat toward third base during an incident against the Oakland Athletics in 2014. Former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez wondered on the FS1 postgame show whether the string of incidents could affect Machado’s impending free agency after the season.“It’s a beauty pageant. You have 30 owners — all want you right now,” he said. “You don’t want four, five owners to sit around and say, ‘Hey, dude, you see what Manny did? Did you see that? Oh, yeah, yeah, we’re out. We like him Anthony DeSclafani Jersey , but now we’re out.’ You’re losing tens of millions of dollars by the second if that becomes the narrative.”Machado, whose late slide last year injured Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia, has been checked a couple times in this NLCS because of close slides into second.Machado gave Aguilar a brief hug after hitting a single in the 13th inning. The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each.Both Machado and Aguilar said after the game that they had no quarrel with each other, and Aguilar said Machado apologized to him.The players’ union declined comment on Machado’s fine. Mitchell Layton/Getty ImagesThe Pittsburgh Pirates acquired infielderAdeiny Hechavarria and cash considerations from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for right-handed pitcherMatt Seelinger, the team announcedMonday.Hechavarria, 29, is hitting .258/.289/.332 with three home runs, seven doubles and 26 RBI this season.However http://www.redsfanproshop.com/…..all-jersey , the Pirates aren’t likely bringingHechavarria aboard because of his bat.Rather, he’s a quality defensive addition for a team that enters Monday’s game against the Colorado Rockies ranked 13th among all National League clubs in fielding percentage (.982).To date, Hechavarria has tallied0.8defensive wins above replacement across 512.1 innings at shortstop. His four defensive runs saved also ranked tied for third among all qualified American League shortstops (minimum 400 innings played), according toFanGraphs.Seelinger, meanwhile, owns a 3.03 ERA, 52 strikeouts and 11 walks in 32.2 innings with Single-A West Virginia this season.Stats courtesy ofBaseball Referenceunless noted otherwise.
