Pitcher Rick Porcello of the Detroit Tigers has received a six-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch at Ben Zobrist of the Tampa Bay Rays in the bottom of the first inning of Sunday’s game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. Joe Garagiola, Jr., Senior Vice President of Standards & Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.
Unless appealed, Porcello’s suspension is scheduled to begin tonight, when the Tigers are to continue their series at Toronto. If appealed, Porcello’s suspension will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
