Orlando City midfielder Felipe Martins was fined an undisclosed amount for embellishment of a foul that drew two yellow cards for Philadelphia Union players in the 88th minute of their 2-1 loss to Orlando City on Saturday night.

Joaquin Torres was shown a yellow card on the play where he fouled Felipe. Kai Wagner went into the book for arguing the call with the ref. Neither yellow card will be rescinded.

From the press release on the disciplinary action:

The MLS Disciplinary Committee has found Orlando City SC midfielder Felipe Martins guilty of simulation/embellishment in the 88th minute of Orlando’s match against the Philadelphia Union on March 25 (VIDEO). Martins has been fined an undisclosed amount for his actions.
