CLEVELAND -- Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks has been fined for throwing a pitch behind a batter.

Major League Baseball imposed the penalty Tuesday. It did not disclose the amount, however a source told ESPNChicago.com that Jenks was fined $750.

Jenks sailed a fastball in back of Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Jenks later said the pitch was intentional because he was tired of watching White Sox batters getting hit with no retaliation.

MLB had to fine him something as he actually admitted it was intentional. He wanted to send a message w/o drilling a guy in the ribs.

I didn't have a problem with it. He didn't throw at his head. He threw it behind the guy. But he's stupid to admit he was doing it on purpose.
