Question of the Day
“I accept it,” Pineda said before Thursday night’s game at Fenway Park. “I know I made a mistake.”
The commissioner’s office announced the ban, which started immediately.
Pineda was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday night’s 5-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox after umpires found the pine tar on the right side of the right-hander’s neck.
After the game, Pineda admitted he used the pine tar to help him grip the ball on a cool, windy night.
Dr. James Andrews is scheduled to perform the operation on Tuesday.
BOSTON (AP) - Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was activated from the disabled list and inserted into the lineup for the first time this season.
He batted in his usual second spot against the New York Yankees after missing the first 22 games with a hamstring injury and the flu.
PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks placed left fielder Mark Trumbo on the 15-day disabled list with a stress fracture in his right foot and recalled outfielder Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno.
Trumbo said he felt pain while jogging to his position Monday against the Chicago Cubs and an MRI revealed the stress fracture. He goes on the DL retroactive to Tuesday.
