Is this going to be a thing all year? MLB has warned teams from getting retribution against the Houston Astros for their sign-stealing scandal, but on Tuesday three different Astros stars were plunked in one game.
First, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman were beaned on back-to-back at-bats in the second inning.
Then in the fifth inning, it was George Springer’s turn to get pegged.
Chances are, if this continues to happen MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred will have something to say in the form of fines and/or suspensions.
