Alfredo Simon 's plunking of Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista in the fifth inning Sunday not only sent the Orioles reliever and his manager, Buck Showalter , to an early exit, but also will cost them a few more games and some dollars. Bob Watson , vice president of on-field operations for Major League Baseball, announced Monday that Simon was issued a three-game suspension for "intentionally" throwing a pitch at Bautista and Showalter was banned for one game as a result of the pitcher's actions.

Orioles first baseman Ty Wigginton began serving his suspension Monday night after Major League Baseball agreed to shorten his ban from three games to two. "I feel it's best to get this behind me," Wigginton said. "I just want to play baseball and move on. " Wigginton was suspended for his actions in the seventh inning of the Orioles' 5-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. The veteran got in the face of first base umpire Gary Darling, who ruled that Wigginton had missed a tag, allowing J.J. Hardy to get back to first safely and causing Wigginton to erupt.

Orioles first baseman Ty Wigginton doesn't believe he made physical contact with umpire Gary Darling during a highlight-reel meltdown Thursday night, but his actions have earned him a three-game suspension and a $2,500 fine.

If I did and didn't realize it, my bad. But I think it was more of a brush, if anything.

Orioles reliever Jamie Walker was fined an undisclosed amount Thursday by Major League Baseball for his comments about umpire Angel Hernandez, who called a balk against Walker that negated a pickoff Tuesday in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Among other things, Walker said: "I don't know if he had money betting on the game or what, but that's a horses - - call." In a prepared statement, Bob Watson, MLB's vice president of on-field operations, called the comments "an inappropriate, unnecessary attack on umpire Hernandez's professionalism.

Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay was a unanimous selection on Tuesday as the NL Cy Young Award winner. Halladay became the 13th unanimous choice in the NL, as he placed first on all 32 ballots cast by two writers from each NL city to finish with 224 points, 102 ahead of the Cardinals' Adam Wainwright , making him the fifth different pitcher to be honored in both leagues. This year the Baseball Writers' Association of America expanded the ballot to five pitchers, meaning the total was based on a tabulation system that rewards seven points for first place, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth.
