NEW YORK | Baltimore pitcher Alfredo Simon has been suspended three games and Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been penalized one game after a run-in this weekend against Toronto.
Simon and Showalter also were fined undisclosed amounts by Major League Baseball after home run leader Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays was plunked Sunday.
Simon has appealed his penalty and can continue to play until the process is complete. Showalter will miss Baltimore's game Monday night at Tampa Bay.
Bautista was twice hit by pitches in the game against the Orioles.
Toronto pitcher Shaun Marcum was fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Baltimore's Luke Scott, which prompted a warning by umpires against further trouble.
