Chicago White Sox star shortstop Tim Anderson has been suspended one game by Major League Baseball “for his inappropriate actions towards fans” during Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Guardians. Anderson is appealing the suspension.

The “inappropriate actions” being referred to are surely about Anderson flipping off Cleveland fans at Progressive Field, which happened in the eighth inning of the first game of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

It was a frustrating game for Anderson, who committed three errors in an 11-1 loss.

Anderson was an AL All-Star in 2021 and won the AL batting title in 2019 (.335). So far in 2022, the shortstop has a .308/.325/.487 slash line in 40 plate appearances.
