Yankees manager Aaron Boone hopes Red Sox brawl is behind them


Aaron Boone doesn’t expect any carryover from Wednesday night’s brawl against the Red Sox.


“Hopefully it’s something that’s behind us,” Boone said. “I don’t see anything happening.”


The Yankees manager thinks MLB could rule on possible suspensions Thursday.


“It’s possible we hear something (about suspensions) today,” he said.

Tyler Austin, third base coach Phil Nevin, reliever Tommy Kahnle were ejected, as well as Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly.


Boone added that he does not plan on speaking with the team after what transpired at Fenway Park on Wednesday.


“I probably won’t get up and address the team in a meeting format,” he said.

Aaron Judge #99 of the New York Yankees fights with Joe Kelly #46 of the Boston Red Sox after Tyler Austin #26 was hit by a pitch during the seventh inning of a game on April 11, 2018 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.

There were no injuries in the brawl.


Austin’s left elbow was still wrapped but Boone said he wasn’t going to play anyway with Aaron Hicks coming back.


Boone said he wouldn’t be surprised if neither team was warned by the umpiring crew before the game.
