Frisco RoughRiders outfielder Engel Beltre has been suspended indefinitely by the Texas League for his role in an altercation with fans after Tuesday's game against the Missions.Classy, and not exactly the best way to help your chances of moving up to the bigs.
The suspension likely will be for 10 days, but a definitive ruling is scheduled to be announced today, a spokesman for the league said.
Beltre was identified as the player who tossed the trash can into the stands moments after the RoughRiders' 7-6 loss to the Missions.
The Texas Rangers, Frisco's major-league parent club, also disciplined the outfielder, placing him on the temporarily inactive list and optioning him to the team's extended spring training site in Arizona.
Frisco manager Steve Buechele said that Beltre's actions would not be tolerated.
“When you put on a uniform and are on the field, it's uncalled for to throw anything in the stands,” Buechele said. “Fans are going to say stuff. You can't react by throwing things.”
