ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Kansas City Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales has received a one-game suspension and a fine for his actions following a ninth inning ejection, which included returning to the field, in Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Joe Garagiola Jr., MLB’s senior vice president of standards and on-field operations, announced the punishment Thursday. The amount of the fine wasn’t disclosed.

Morales was scheduled to serve the suspension Thursday when the Royals play the final game of a four-game series with the Rays, but he appealed the ruling and was in the starting lineup.
