David Ortiz was fined a "significant" amount for his dugout rage in Baltimore, according to a major league source.

Ortiz was not suspended for taking a bat to the dugout phone on Saturday, but Major League Baseball didn't let him off the hook, either.

The story is old now, but Ortiz received quite a bit of heat from some fans who thought the designated hitter overreacted to a high 3-and-0 pitch that was called a strike by home plate umpire Tim Timmons in a game the Red Sox led, 7-2, in the seventh inning.

Ortiz struck out and was ejected soon after.
