Should The Pittsburgh Pirates Part Ways With Kyle Crick?

On Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that reliever Kyle Crick‘s 2019 season was over. His season ended early due to undergoing finger surgery. The cause of this finger surgery? A clubhouse altercation with closer Felipe Vazquez prior to Monday’s game.

Due to the altercation Crick was fined by the Pirates. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the fine was only $2,500. To many people a $2,500 fine would be a hefty one, but to a MLB player that’s nothing more than a drop in the bucket.

In July, Crick got into an altercation with Pirates bullpen coach Herbie Andrade.
