Dye ruling to be sent down today

Major League Baseball is expected to announce its penalty for Jermaine Dye's altercation with umpire Mike DiMuro Wednesday in Cleveland.

DiMuro called Dye out on strikes with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. Dye flipped his bat, argued with DiMuro and slammed is helmet on the ground en route to being ejected from the game. But the situation was complicated when the helmet bounced off the ground and hit DiMuro. Baseball will rule whether Dye's actions warrant a fine, suspension or both.
