Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is facing a fine and possible suspension after returning to the field after he was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in Monday night's game, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
Harper was ejected in the ninth inning of Washington's 5–4 victory over the Detroit Tigers while standing in the dugout. After the game, Harper went onto the field to celebrate Clint Robinson's walk-off home run and cursed at the umpire.
Harper did not apologize for his behavior after the game as he told reporters, “Let him hear what I had to say. Let him hear it again. So what.”

Boston Red Sox manager John Ferrell will reportedly not be suspended for returning to the field after being ejected during last Friday’s game against the New York Yankees.
