MLB issues 8 suspensions after Cincinnati Reds-Pittsburgh Pirates brawl; David Bell out 6 games

ATLANTA – Two days after a benches-clearing brawl between the Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates, Major League Baseball announced suspensions for six players and both managers on Thursday afternoon that totaled 40 games.

Reds pitcher Amir Garrett received an eight-game suspension, manager David Bell was given a six-game suspension, pitcher Jared Hughes was suspended for three games and former Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig received a three-game suspension.

For the Pirates, reliever Keone Kela was given a 10-game suspension, infielder José Osuna received a five-game suspension, Kyle Crick got three games and manager Clint Hurdle was suspended for two games.

All six players elected to appeal their suspensions and are eligible to play until their appeals are resolved. Suspended players count against the 25-man roster.

We assume that the Indians were expecting this when they traded for Puig, but, given how their management has behaved this year to date….

MLB hands out suspensions after White Sox-Royals fight

Kansas City Royals pitcher Brad Keller was handed a five-game suspension Friday for intentionally throwing at Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson – an act that sparked a benches-clearing fracas at Guaranteed Rate Field earlier this week.

Anderson and White Sox manager Rick Renteria were also suspended one game apiece for their roles in the kerfuffle, which came after Anderson flipped his bat following a home run off Keller in the fourth inning of the Royals’ 4-3 win on Wednesday.

Sadly, I don’t think suspensions this short will do the slightest in discouraging this behavior….
