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….
