The Cleveland Indians have sent home pitcher Zach Plesac.

According to Ken Rosenthal, Plesac was sent home after he went out Saturday night with friends in Chicago, which violated team protocol during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Jeff Passan also confirmed that Plesac was sent packing “after he violated team rules by leaving the hotel to go out in Chicago.”

Good for the Indians for pulling the trigger on sending one of their top players home. We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and these players are paid to play baseball.

They’re not paid to hang out with their buddies and breach protocol. If they want to do that, then they don’t need to play.

It’s that simple. Either follow the rules, or get the hell off of the team. By not following the rules, you’re putting the entire organization at risk.

It’s incredibly selfish and stupid, and there’s no other way to put it. As long as you’re being paid to play, then follow the coronavirus rules!

Don’t take unnecessary risks and put the clubhouse at risk. This shouldn’t be hard to understand. Props to the Indians for sending a message. Hopefully, more players don’t make dumb mistakes.
