St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina decided not to appeal a five-game suspension for bumping an umpire and spraying him with spittle, saying the punishment was fair.
The Cardinals’ schedule and Molina’s sore hand made the decision easier to sit out now… Molina will return from his suspension Wednesday.
“I was looking at it like, take it right away,” he said. “You want to be part of the race. It’s better to do it now and get it done with and move on.”
Another factor in the decision not to appeal was the bruise on the palm of Molina’s right hand. The injury occurred when he blocked a pitch Wednesday, and he said it likely would have kept him out of two or three games anyway.
