If Jermaine Dye throws his helmet and it hits an umpire in the chest, it’s, um, a two game suspension.

White Sox right fielder Jermaine Dye received a two-game suspension and was fined an undisclosed amount for his actions in Wednesday’s 4-0 loss at Cleveland.

In the sixth inning of the game, Dye took a called third strike with the bases loaded and two outs. He flipped his bat and slammed his batting helmet to the ground before being ejected by home-plate umpire Mike DiMuro.
