    MLB has suspended A.J. Burnett six games for throwing over the head of Nelson Cruz

    Pitcher A.J. Burnett suspended 6 games for throwing at Ranger

    A.J. Burnett was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing intentionally at Nelson Cruz of the Rangers on Tuesday night.

    Burnett threw a pitch toward Cruz’s head in the fifth inning, a pitch that Major League Baseball believed was in retaliation for Vicente Padilla hitting Mark Teixeira twice earlier in the game.

    Burnett has appealed his suspension, meaning he will likely be on the mound for his scheduled start on Sunday against the Rays.

    Padilla was not suspended, but he was fined for throwing at Teixeira in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game.

    I never understood the arbitrary length of pitcher suspensions. 6 games missed=1 start missed.

    Another reason why the DH sucks. If there was no DH, Padilla would have been dealt with directly.
