Hector Jimenez was given an additional one-game suspension and assessed an undisclosed fine Friday for his studs-up tackle on Steven Beitashour in the Galaxy's 3-2 loss Wednesday night to San Jose and Home Depot Center.


The second-year winger from Bell Gardens, who was making just his second Major League Soccer start, was red-carded for the 59th-minute offense. That carries an automatic one-game suspension, for Saturday night's game at Houston, and Jimenez also will miss the June 17 match against Portland.

The Galaxy also announced that forward Adam Cristman has been placed on the MLS Disabled List with a concussion. He had missed the first six games this season with a concussion suffered during a preseason match. He'll be eligible to return for the July 8 game at Chicago but can play in U.S. Open Cup, MLS Reserve League and friendly matches before then.
