MLB suspends Chicago White Sox pitcher Mike Wright for intentionally throwing ball at Shohei Ohtani
Chicago White Sox pitcher Mike Wright was suspended for three games and manager Tony La Russa for one by Major League Baseball, which concluded Wright intentionally threw at the Los Angeles Angels' Shohei Ohtani.
Wright appealed the suspension issued by Michael Hill, the former Marlins general manager who is MLB's senior vice president for on-field operations.
The discipline will be held in abeyance until the appeal is decided by MLB special adviser John McHale Jr. La Russa sat out Chicago's game at Texas on Saturday. Bench coach Miguel Cairo ran the dugout in La Russa's absence.
