David Ortiz will not be suspended for his dugout tirade during Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Ortiz had multiple issues that night with home plate umpire Tim Timmons and eventually took his frustration out on a dugout phone at Camden Yards, smashing it to pieces with his bat. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says Major League Baseball officials reviewed the incident and have decided not to levy any discipline.via roto

Don't know what the precedent is, but he should definitely (IMO) receive a short suspension and/or a fine. That type of crap should never go undisciplined.

He won't get suspended, that has been confirmed. However, he'll probably be fined.
