Given that he had just let up two straight bombs ... Baltimore felt Manoah hit Franco on purpose -- and an all-out brawl nearly ensued.
Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed before any punches were thrown ... but Manoah was ejected nonetheless -- and the MLB clearly felt Tuesday, that it wasn't enough punishment for the 23-year-old righty.
MLB officials announced Manoah "has received a five-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing at Maikel Franco."
They added Manoah's manager, Charlie Montoyo, was also receiving a one-game ban for his role in the incident.
Manoah will appeal, however, which means his suspension will not go into effect until that process is completed.
Manoah, a rookie, has been great for Toronto since he was called up in late May, posting a 4.18 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 23.2 innings pitched.
