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?

From what I’ve heard, he’s just kind of a hot-headed jerk who doesn’t really want to be here. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him get traded in the next couple of weeks.

He took a long-ass time to report after the Pirates traded for him, and he picked up a disciplinary suspension for a lack of effort while he was with the Rangers, so maybe something similar to one of those in this case, too?

He was a very hot commodity at last year's trade deadline; an excellent relief pitcher for a non-contender who had years of control left.

I am sure the teams who offered up prospects but just not as much as the Pirates did, feel as if they dodged a bullet, right now.

He had a hotplate in his locker. The team handbook clearly states no hotplates.
