NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees manager Aaron Boone has been suspended one game by Major League Baseball for nicking the plate umpire with his cap during an animated argument over the weekend.Boone served the penalty Sunday when New York hosted Detroit. He also was fined an undisclosed amount.Bench coach Josh Bard ran the team in Boone’s absence.Boone was ejected Friday night by plate ump Nic Lentz for arguing balls and strikes. Boone got into a crouch behind the plate Bert Blyleven Jersey , imitating a catcher gloving a pitch, and then argued nose-to-nose with Lentz.During the dispute, the bill of Boone’s hat touched Lentz’s hat.“Obviously, I got a little too close for comfort there, so that’s part of the deal. I just got to accept that,” the first-year manager said before the game.“Look, I was arguing. I got kicked out of the game. I reacted how I reacted. Unfortunately, I got a little too close http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-o_neill-jersey , so I do regret that,” he said. “I always want to be in control, in control of my emotions to a degree, but sometimes you also have to state your claim and defend certain things that are important. But I definitely shouldn’t have nicked his cap.”Asked if this was something he could keep in mind for a similar situation in the future, Boone said: “Yeah, or just flip the cap the around backwards and let ‘er rip.”“I’ll be hopefully better, learning from this and commanding my emotions in a better way,” he said. Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Vottowas placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right lower leg contusion Jacoby Ellsbury Jersey , the team announcedFriday.Votto has been hobbled since taking a fastball from Washington Nationals reliever Ryan Madson to the knee on Aug. 4:The Reds star was clearly heated, wondering if it was retaliation for a Bryce Harper hit-by-pitch."My reaction kind of falls in line with [not knowing Madson's intent]," Votto said, via MLB.com's Kyle Melnick.Outfielder Aristides Aquino, the team's No. 16 overall prospect, has been called up from Double-A in a corresponding move.Votto is still one of the National League's most productive players at the plate as he exits what are typically a player's peak seasons at age 34. He topped 20 home runs for the eighth time in 2017 with 36 and also led the NL in on-base percentage for the second straight year.He is hitting .284 with nine home runs, 24 doubles, 55 RBI anda league-leading .422 on-base percentage. He has hit just .227 with one extra-base hit and three RBI in eight games since the incident http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-don-mattingly-jersey , missing a pair of contests during that time.The Toronto native has also remained durable over recent years. He's played at least 158 regular-season games in four of the last five campaigns. The one exception came in 2014 when he was limited to 62 appearances due to a quadriceps issue.Cincinnati doesn't have a proven replacement for Votto. After having traded Adam Duvall at the non-waiver deadline, Jim Riggleman will have to figure out a solution. Dilson Herrera, Brandon Dixon, Curt Casali and Tucker Barnhart could all see time at first.Ultimately, the Reds' batting order isn't anywhere near as potent without Votto in the middle, no matter how they try to replace him. That said, the focus now is making sure he's able to shake off any issues so they don't linger throughout the year.
