MLB Fines Jenks for Throwing Behind a Batter

By  | 

CLEVELAND (AP) - Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks has been
fined for throwing a pitch behind a batter.

Major League Baseball imposed the penalty Tuesday. It did not disclose the amount.

Jenks sailed a fastball in back of Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Jenks later said the pitch was intentional because he was tired of watching White Sox batters getting hit with no retaliation.
