ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers third baseman Asdrúbal Cabrera plans to appeal a four-game suspension from Major League Baseball for throwing equipment on the field that hit an umpire.

MLB handed down the suspension Friday, a day after umpire crew chief Bill Miller was hit on the foot by a small shin guard or batting gloves thrown from the dugout by Cabrera after he was ejected in the sixth inning of a 4-2 win over Cleveland.

The Rangers' lineup for Friday night's game against the Chicago White Sox included Cabrera.

Cabrera tossed the shin guard and gloves after his ejection , a couple of pitches to the next batter after Cabrera was upset about a called third strike by home plate umpire Doug Eddings.

Cabrera saw video of the pitch after going to the dugout, where he was when he started chirping and got ejected by Eddings. Cabrera threw the equipment while Miller was talking with Rangers manager Chris Woodward.
