Mesa suspended two games

As if the Tigers aren’t losing enough players as it is, Jose Mesa will miss the first two games next week. He’ll serve out a suspension he received with the Rockies for intentionally throwing at Omar Vizquel Mark Sweeney last September. It was originally a three-game suspension when it was issued last year, but he appealed it down.
