Seunghwan Oh signs with Korean team

It’s full circle for the reliever known as “The Final Boss.” Seunghwan Oh has signed a one-year deal with the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization. Jeeho Yoo of Yonhap News Agency tweeted the report.

It isn’t every day that a player returns to a league that has a long suspension waiting for him, especially when the offense at hand was gambling….

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….

Pirates suspend Keone Kela two games for contract violation

On Monday, the Pirates announced the club suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified contract violation. Kela will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Phrased this way, I keep imagining some sort of 19th-century offense- did he try to jump teams?

Phillies’ Odubel Herrera Arrested At Golden Nugget Hotel And Casino For Allegedly Assaulting Girlfriend, Police Say

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at an Atlantic City hotel and casino, police say. Herrera, 27, was taken into custody without incident at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino around 8:30 p.m. He has now been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball.

Atlantic City police officers responded Monday night to the Golden Nugget for a domestic violence incident report.

When they arrived, they found a 20-year-old woman, of Philadelphia, with visible signs of injury to her arms and neck after allegedly being assaulted by Herrera.

MLB notebook: Gausman faces suspension for Urena throw

Atlanta Braves right-hander Kevin Gausman received a five-game suspension Monday for intentionally throwing a pitch at Marlins right-hander Jose Urena on Friday night in Miami.

Major League Baseball chief baseball officer Joe Torre announced the punishment, which also includes an undisclosed fine.

The suspension was set to begin Monday night when the Braves opened a series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. But Gausman filed an appeal, so he will be able to make his scheduled start against the Dodgers.

The incident occurred in Urena’s first plate appearance in the bottom of the second inning, an apparent payback for Urena plunking Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. on Aug. 15 last season. Gausman’s 97-mph fastball sailed behind Urena, but he was immediately ejected by home plate umpire Jeff Nelson.

So, one start, in other words?

Mets reliever Jacob Rhame gets two-game suspension for ‘intentionally’ throwing at Phillies’ Rhys Hoskins

Mets reliever Jacob Rhame has been suspended for two games for throwing a pitch “in the area of the head” of Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins, Major League Baseball announced on Thursday late afternoon. The announcement noted the suspension will begin Friday—the Mets’ next game—unless Rhame appeals, in which case his suspension will be held in abeyance until the appeal is heard.

Mind you, when it’s a reliever, does a two-game suspension really mean anything?

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….

3 minor leaguers suspended for drugs of abuse

NEW YORK (AP) — Seattle outfielder Eric Filia has been suspended for 100 games following a third positive test for a drug of abuse under baseball’s minor league drug program.

Filia served a 50-game suspension at the start of last season after his second positive test for a drug of abuse. The 26-year-old returned to hit .274 with two homers and 38 RBIs in 79 games for Double-A Arkansas.

Kansas City pitcher Jon Perrin and Boston pitcher Chase Shugart were suspended for 50 games each Friday following second positive tests for a drug of abuse.
