Aspito only gets one-game suspension

According to York Revolution director of baseball operations, Adam Gladstone, outfielder Jason Aspito has been suspended for only one game by the Atlantic League office. The suspension was merited after Aspito bumped umpire Matt Beaver in Tuesday night’s 2-1 loss against Bridgeport.

Aspito sat out Wednesday’s series finale with Bridgeport after meeting with the league’s executive director, Joe Klein, and he’s been cleared to play Thursday night against Long Island in Central Islip, N.Y. Aspito sat in the stands behind home plate for the Bridgeport finale and the league considers that game time served on his suspension.

Aspito currently leads the Revs in home runs (eight), go-ahead RBIs (7), game-winning RBIs (3) and two-out RBIs (13), so only losing him for a single game is a huge plus for the Revolution. But it’s also a perplexing suspension. Lancaster manager Von Hayes got two games for making contact with an umpire earlier in the year, and many pundits estimated that Aspito’s suspension would be at least twice as long as Hayes’. That was just how bad the altercation with Beaver was.

The process for determining the suspension is fairly simple. There’s an ejection report filed by the umpires and Klein has a conversation with the crew chief of the staff. Then he interviews the player (Aspito in this case) and hands out the punishment.

Dryer’s status uncertain: Gladstone added that he’s uncertain when infielder Matt Dryer will return to the Revolution. Dryer is back home in Rochester, N.Y. with his father, who is recovering from hip surgery.
