OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – Oakland Athletics outfielder Ramon Laureano has been suspended for 5 games following his heated weekend brawl with Astros players, according to USA Today Sports.

Astros hitting coach Alex Cintron has been suspended for 20 games.

The suspensions come just days after Laureano apparently charged the Astros dugout after reportedly being taunted by Cintron.

According to Laureano, Cintron had said something vile about his mother, but he said he regrets charging the dugout.

“I regret charging him because he’s a loser,” Laureano told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. “[A suspension] is understandable, but I hope it’s not that many games.”
