Indians' Ubaldo Jimenez Suspended Five Games For Plunking Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki
There's apparently no love lost between Cleveland Indians hurler Ubaldo Jimenez and his former team, the Colorado Rockies -- MLB.com reports that Jimenez has been suspended five games for throwing at former teammate Troy Tulowitzki.

Jimenez drilled Tulowitzki in the elbow in the first inning of yesterday's 12-10 Tribe win. Both benches cleared, but no punches were thrown.
Jimenez told reporters later that he saw no reason for a suspension, insisting that "Players are hit by pitches every day," but apparently Major League Baseball saw otherwise.
