Joe Kelly Suspended Eight Games For Astros Incident 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 30, 2020 12:44 pm

Major League Baseball has suspended Joe Kelly for eight games for his role in the benches-clearing incident that occurred at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Tuesday night.

In addition, Dave Roberts was issued a one-game suspension and Dusty Baker was fined an unknown amount.

Kelly, who threw a fastball behind Alex Bregman\'s head and later taunted Carlos Correa on the way back to the dugout, will appeal his suspension.

Under the 60-game format, an eight-game suspension accounts for more than 13% of the schedule.
