Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie was suspended by Major League Baseball for four games Wednesday following a run-in with umpire Bill Miller. Lawrie also was fined an undisclosed amount of money for what was termed “aggressive actions” towards Miller, including throwing a helmet near Miller during the ninth inning of Tuesday night’s game at Rogers Centre against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. MLB Senior Vice President of Standards and On-Field Operations, Joe Garagiola Jr., issued the ruling Wednesday. Lawrie has the option to appeal the suspension. Otherwise, he was slated to begin serving it Wednesday night when Toronto hosted the New York Yankees. If he appeals, the suspension will be temporarily pushed aside until the appeal is adjudicated.
