Rodney suspension reduced to two games
Fernando Rodney will serve a two-game suspension starting tonight after his appeal was heard by phone today.
Rodney’s suspension was originally three games for throwing a ball that landed in the press box at Tropicana Field Sept. 4. Though he got a game taken off of that, his fine remains at $3,000.
Rodney can work out with the team before the game and throw on the side, but he can’t be in the dugout or the clubhouse once the game starts. Most likely, he’ll be watching the games from one of the suites that his teammates have.
