Ortiz Suspended For Four Games

David Ortiz and Baltimore's Kevin Gregg were each suspended for four games for their part in bench-clearing incidents last Friday.

Orioles pitcher Mike Gonzalez was suspended for three games, and manager Buck Showalter was suspended for one game. All four guys were also fined, as were John Lackey, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jim Johnson.

Gonzalez and Gregg say they will file appeals, while Showalter will serve his suspension tonight. No word yet on what Ortiz will do. Ortiz says he will appeal his suspension.

Ortiz says he will appeal.

Beckett will throw a side session on Friday AM, to see how his knee feels

Baltimore O's announcers have been bitching about their suspensions the entire game tonight. It's pretty hilarious.
