Badenhop suspended for three games


NEW YORK — Florida pitcher Burke Badenhop has been suspended three games and Marlins manager Fredi
Gonzalez was penalized one game after trouble this weekend at Dodger Stadium.
Major League Baseball issued the penalties Monday. Badenhop also was fined, as was Los Angeles pitcher
Jeff Weaver. Badenhop’s suspension will begin Tuesday night.
Badenhop, from Perrysburg High School and Bowling Green State University, hit Orlando Hudson in the rear
with a pitch in the seventh inning of Sunday’s 8-6 win. Earlier in the game, Weaver hit Florida’s Hanley
Ramirez with a pitch, prompting umpire Bob Davidson to issue warnings against further trouble.
“Call it what you want,” Badenhop told the Associated Press about the pitch. “I hadn’t been out there for
a week and I just yanked a fastball.”
Badenhhop was also fined $1,000 and is not expected to appeal the suspension, according to The Miami
Badenhop is 5-4 this season with a 3.46 earned-run average in 25 appearances, including one start.
He is expected to start Saturday for the Marlins against the Chicago Cubs.
