Porcello drops appeal
He will serve out his five-game suspension starting tonight. The fact that Armando Galarraga was scratched today means they can get through this stretch without needing another spot start, assuming Galarraga recovers in time to start later this week.
UPDATE: Galarraga will start Sunday against the Royals in Porcello’s place. Porcello will start next Tuesday against the Mariners.
