MLB is warming up for the coming Dodgers-Diamondbacks suspensions: just now it suspended Giants pitcher George Kontos and manager Bruce Bochy. Kontos gets a three-game suspension, Bochy a one-gamer. Bochy will serve his tonight. Kontos, who was just optioned to the minors, will serve his if and when he gets called back up.
The suspensions are the result of Kontos intentionally throwing a pitch at Andrew McCutchen in the bottom of the eighth inning of Tuesday’s game. A warning had already been issued but went unheeded.
