Sources: Major League Baseball fined Red Sox for lineup against Marlins
|03.08.14 at 9:19 pm ET|
According to multiple industry sources, Major League Baseball disciplined the Red Sox in the form of a small fine after the team fielded a lineup against the Marlins in Jupiter, Fla., on Thursday that failed to meet MLB guidelines for the participation of lineup regulars. The Sox lineup featured only one player — center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. — viewed as a legitimate possibility for a place in the team’s Opening Day lineup. MLB guidelines, meanwhile, stipulate that teams feature four players who were regulars (either everyday players of regular platoon members) in the previous season or four players with a legitimate shot at being regulars during the forthcoming season.
