New York, NY – Major League Baseball suspended Cleveland Indians pitcher Jeanmar Gomez for five games for intentionally throwing at and hitting Kansas City's Mike Moustakas during last Saturday's game.
The incident took place in the bottom of the third inning. Gomez was also fined an undisclosed amount.
Unless appealed, Gomez is scheduled to begin serving his suspension during Cleveland's game Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners. If Gomez elects to file an appeal, then the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
