KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The suspensions for Kansas City Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera have been cut by Major League Baseball from seven games to six.

Herrera began serving the penalty Thursday when the Royals hosted Cleveland.

The hard-throwing Herrera appealed after being suspended for two separate incidents.

Herrera’s five-game ban for throwing behind the back of Oakland’s Brett Lawrie last month was upheld. Herrera’s penalty for a brawl with the Chicago White Sox on April 23 was reduced from two games to one.

Herrera is 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA in 13 games. He pitched Tuesday and Wednesday against the Indians.
