New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has been suspended for 10 games for possessing a foreign substance on his person during the bottom of the second inning of his Club's Wednesday, April 23rd game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Joe Garagiola, Jr., Senior Vice President of Standards and On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.
Unless appealed, Pineda's suspension is scheduled to begin tonight, when the two Clubs continue their series in Boston. If appealed, the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
