Hansel Robles will appeal his three-game suspension, to remain active
On Thursday, Major League Baseball announced Hansel Robles had been suspended for three games and received an undisclosed fine for, “intentional throwing a pitch in the head area” of Cameron Rupp during Wednesday’s game at Citizens Bank Park.
On Friday, Robles said he will appeal his suspension, meaning he can continue pitching until the appeal is heard by the Office of the Commissioner.
If the process extends beyond the weekend and the suspension is upheld or reduced, Robles will serve that suspension when the 2016 regular season begins next April.
No matter what, Robles will be available to pitch in the playoffs and World Series.
