Magadan suspended following ejection
NEW YORK -- Boston Red Sox hitting coach Dave Magadan has been suspended for Friday night's game at Atlanta and fined following his ejection against Washington this week.
Magadan was thrown out by plate umpire Bob Davidson in the fourth inning of Boston's 6-4 win Wednesday after disputing a low-and-away strike to Kevin Youkilis.
Bob Watson, Major League Baseball's vice president in charge of discipline, cited Magadan for "inappropriate actions." It was Magadan's fifth career ejection, his second as a coach.
