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.
