An umpire working Thursday's St, Louis Cardinals-Chicago Cubs said he will file a report after there was physical contact involved in Milton Bradley's ejection, meaning Bradley could be subject to a suspension, according to MLB.com.
The Chicago Tribune reported late Thursday night that second-base umpire Larry Iassogna said a report would be filed because it was a "contact" incident.
Bradley was ejected in the sixth inning by home-plate umpire Larry Vanover after a called third strike and a brief but heated verbal exchange. Iassogna declined comment when asked how Bradley made contact with Vanover, the Tribune reported.
Bradley was making his first appearance with the Cubs at Wrigley Field when Adam Wainwright struck him out on a full-count pitch.
