Yankees´ Sabathia misses out on $500,000 after being ejected

September 28 2018 12:40 AM

New York Yankees stalwart CC Sabathia took throwing money away to a whole different level after missing out on a cash incentive following his ejection.

Sabathia, 38, needed to complete seven innings on Thursday to earn a $500,000 contract bonus by reaching 155 innings this MLB season. 

However, Sabathia got himself ejected in the sixth inning of the Yankees' 12-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays by hitting Jesus Sucre with the first pitch.

Sabathia's purpose pitch stemmed from the top of the inning, when Tampa Bay's Andrew Kittredge threw a pitch behind Yankees catcher Austin Romine's shoulder.

The 2007 American League Cy Young Award winner and six-time All-Star took a few steps out of New York's dugout as Romine dusted himself off, the only Yankee to do so, as home plate umpire Vic Carapazza issued warnings to both dugouts.

New York went on to score four runs in the inning, including home runs from Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton. 

The Rays' catcher, Sucre, led off the bottom of the sixth, and 2009 World Series champion Sabathia drilled him squarely in the thigh with the first pitch.

Carapazza immediately ejected Sabathia, who turned to Tampa Bay's dugout and had some words before walking slowly off the field. 

While Sabathia already has thrown away a sizable bit of cash by missing the innings bonus, he also figures to be in line for discipline from MLB.

Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena was suspended for six games last month after hitting Ronald Acuna Jr. with a pitch.
