Texas/Toronto brawl: Multiple suspensions likely to be announced today, per report

Texas/Toronto brawl:  The Rougned Odor/Jose Bautista-triggered brawl between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday resulted in multiple ejections, and Jon Paul Morosi tweets that "multiple suspensions" are likely to be announced today in connection with that game.

Rougned Odor, of course, is expected to be hit with the longest suspension, while Jose Bautista is also likely to miss some time.  Matt Bush and Jesse Chavez, who hit Bautista and Prince Fielder, respectively, in that game, could miss time, as could managers Jeff Banister and John Gibbons.  Gibbons came out on the field during the fight despite having previously been ejected, so he's almost certain to get a suspension.

Jon Heyman just tweeted that Odor is "expected to get around an 8 game ban," which is a little lower than what I expected to be initially announced, but which would be in line with what Carlos Quentin got for breaking Zack Greinke's collarbone.

Josh Donaldson was ejected, and video showed Kevin Pillar running around like a crazy person during the fight, so they could get dinged.  Steve Beuchele was ejected, as well, so he could miss some time, too.
