BALTIMORE — Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has been suspended for five games and fined for intentionally throwing his bat on the field during Sunday’s game against Oakland.
Machado said Tuesday he will appeal the suspension. He was in the starting lineup batting second against visiting Boston.
It was uncertain when the appeal would be heard. But the Orioles play in New York next week, and appeals are often heard there.
Machado let his bat fly in the direction of third base after swinging at a pitch from Oakland’s Fernando Abad in the eighth inning. The bat-toss came during a plate appearance in which Abad threw a tight pitch to Machado.
After the bat went soaring, both benches emptied. Machado and Abad were ejected.
