A few days ago the benches cleared because Triple-A Rochester RHP Lester Oliveros intentionally threw at C Austin Romine‘s head after giving up back-to-back homers. Here’s video. Romine has not played since but Joe Girardi told Chad Jennings he is doing okay. No concussion and all other tests came back good. Still, scary moment.
Oliveros has not yet been suspended. Oliveros was suspended a whole seven games.
