In the wake of Chris Sale throwing behind Manny Machado, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred held a conference call with the managers of both teams and warned them not to continue this feud, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Sale is likely to be disciplined in some form, possibly a suspension.

Here's video of the pitch Sale threw behind Machado:

Here is what Joe Torre, MLB's chief baseball officer, told Rosenthal:

"One issue is the fact they've played each other so often. Once something happens, then it just seems to grow and fester and all that. Basically, in trying to keep score on who owes or who what, we figured there was enough going on with both sides that we basically just had a phone call today to let them know we want to play baseball. We don't want to get anybody hurt.

"Players deserve to be on the field. We appreciate your passion but we certainly need to have the focus on playing games instead of trying to get even, if somebody thinks they need to get even.

"Sitting in an impartial seat, you look at it and realize enough is enough. I know if you wear a uniform, you're always feeling that you're on the short end of it. I understand that feeling. But the commissioner made his point, without going into specifics, just about getting down to baseball. If this stuff continues, there will be some discipline."

Despite the conference call, Wednesday's game will not begin with official warnings issued. The teams were not warned prior to Monday's or Tuesday's games either.

This feud all started when Machado spiked Dustin Pedroia in the calf two weeks ago. Matt Barnes threw behind Machado's head later in the series and was suspended four games. Sale then threw behind Machado's legs Tuesday, but was not ejected despite the obvious intent. Machado ripped the Red Sox after the game. Here is a full timeline of the feud.

If Sale is indeed suspended, it would like be around 10 days or so, which will force him to miss a start. The Red Sox and Orioles still have 12 games remaining this season, and with blood as bad as it apparently is, MLB's warnings may not be enough of a deterrent to get the two teams to stop throwing at each other.
