Ozzie Guillen Won't Be Punished For Retaliation Threats

Ozzie Guillen appears to be in the clear after vowing to have his pitchers retaliate when his batters are hit.

The White Sox skipper received a warning about his remarks, but not a fine or suspension from MLB, ESPN Chicago's Bruce Levine reports.

After three White Sox hitters were beaned by Cleveland Indians pitchers Saturday, Guillen threw down the gauntlet.

"If I see someone hit my player, and I know they hit him on purpose it's two guys going down. I don't care if I get suspended," Guillen said Sunday. "I rather have me suspended for two games than have my players on the DL for 30 days."

Guillen was reportedly warned, however, that he could face real punishment if he continued to talk about hitting players.
