Major League Baseball spokesman Michael Teevan said the incident remains under review but that a suspension has been ruled out.
Analysis: Unhappy with two called strikes by home plate umpire Tim Timmons in Saturday's game against the Orioles, Ortiz returned to the dugout after being ejected and destroyed the covers of two phones with his bat before charging onto the field.
