Kansas City Royals pitcher Amir Garrett has received a three-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for throwing a drink on a spectator in the stands during his Club’s Tuesday, August 2nd road game against the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field. Michael Hill, Major League Baseball’s Senior Vice President for On-Field Operations, made the announcement.
The suspension of Garrett had been scheduled to begin tonight, when the Royals are to visit the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. However, Garrett has elected to appeal. Thus, the discipline will be held in abeyance until that process is complete.
