Source: Indians discipline Plesac for leaving hotel
MLB 

The Cleveland Indians sent home starter Zach Plesac after he violated team rules by leaving the hotel to go out in Chicago on Saturday night, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The Athletic first reported the news on Plesac, who now will be quarantined for 72 hours back in Cleveland.

Plesac drove back to Cleveland in a rental car, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The right-hander tossed six strong innings in the Indians’ 7-1 victory Saturday over the Chicago White Sox in Chicago. He is 1-1 on the season with a 1.29 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 21 innings pitched.

The Indians have been extremely stringent with safety protocols, and this action is seen as a warning to players. During summer camp, outfielder Franmil Reyes was ordered to stay away from the team after he was seen at a party without a mask on.

The Indians and White Sox wrap up their series in Chicago on Sunday night (7 p.m. ET, ESPN).
