ChiSox’s Anderson suspended for flipping off fan


Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson was suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount by Major League Baseball on Friday for giving fans the middle finger during a game Wednesday in Cleveland.

Anderson is appealing the ban and will play until the matter is settled. He remained in the lineup Friday, committing his sixth error in three games in a 2-1 loss to Minnesota.

Anderson had three errors in the first two innings of Chicago’s 11-1 loss to the Guardians on Wednesday in the opening game of a doubleheader. The frustrated 28-year-old made the gesture toward a fan while out in the field.

“I have to apologize for my actions,” Anderson said Friday. “There are a lot of people who really look up to me. I take full accountability of what I did. But it’s something that I have to learn from and grow from.”

Anderson committed just 10 errors all of last season.

It’s the second time MLB has suspended Anderson this season. He served a two-game ban on opening weekend for making contact with umpire Tim Timmons during the ninth inning of a game on Sept. 27. Anderson successfully appealed that suspension down from three games.

Anderson is batting .300 with five RBIs and a home run. He made his first All-Star team in 2021 and finished the season with a .309 average, 17 home runs and 61 RBIs to help lead the White Sox to an AL Central title.
