SF Giants manager Gabe Kapler suspended by MLB

ATLANTA — Giants manager Gabe Kapler won’t be in uniform Friday night for the team’s series opener against the Braves.

Kapler received a one-game suspension, Major League Baseball announced, for his actions after being ejected from their game Tuesday. The first suspension of Kapler’s managerial career, he did not appeal and will hand off managing duties Friday to one of his lieutenants. He was also fined an undisclosed amount.

Kapler was disciplined for re-entering the dugout after being ejected, the league said.

The ejection was Kapler’s seventh of his career as a manager but only his third time with the Giants.

Kapler was ejected for arguing balls and strikes during rookie Wade Meckler’s second at-bat.
