NEW YORK (AP) - Boston pitcher Josh Beckett has been suspended for six games and fined by Major League Baseball, which determined he intentionally threw a pitch near the head of the Los Angeles Angels' Bobby Abreu last week.

Beckett also was cited for "aggressive actions" after the pitch that led to the benches clearing Sunday, according to Bob Watson, vice president for discipline in the commissioner's office.

If Beckett appeals, any penalties would be delayed until after a hearing.

Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher was suspended for one game and fined, and he was to serve the penalty Tuesday night. In addition, Watson fined Angels manager Mike Scioscia and players Torii Hunter and Justin Speier.

Seen much worse get less time than that. If Sammy only gets 1 game for using a corked bat, then the most Beckett is probably going to get is 3 games.

its only 6 games because he's a starting pitcher.... it'll force him to miss a start... what sense would it make to suspend a starting pitcher the 4 games he has off :huh:

You don't get paid when you are suspended. Plus, you can't be with the team during those games, which is a big deal to a lot of guys.

I always disliked that suspension rule with pitchers. If a regular is suspended for 6 games he misses 6 games. Pitchers should be suspended for starts. MLB knows that teams use a 5 man rotation. It's only fair to make them miss just as much playing time as a regular.

BOSTON (AP)—Josh Beckett’s suspension has been reduced to five games from six, meaning the Boston Red Sox pitcher won’t miss his scheduled turn in the rotation.

The results of Beckett’s appeal were announced Sunday. He was suspended for throwing near the head of Los Angeles’ Bobby Abreu last Sunday.

He will start Saturday against the New York Yankees. Jon Lester is now scheduled to pitch the series opener on Friday.

Beckett (2-1) pitched six innings in Boston’s 6-4 win over the Orioles on Saturday night.

Good, Beckett didn't do a single thing wrong. Unless you think NOT hitting somebody is worth a 6 game suspension.

It was ridiculous that he even got repremanded. He didn't do anything wrong. He threw a wild pitch, that didn't even hit Abreu...wow, someone shoot the guy.

You're a moron. Go watch the whole altercation before you say stupid schit. If you still don't think he didn't do anything wrong, well, then you're just a typical Gator fan.
