Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster suspended for hitting Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez with pitch
Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster was suspended five games by Major League Baseball Tuesday for hitting Alex Rodriguez with a pitch on Sunday night.
Dempster will also pay an undisclosed fine.
The Sox righty was scheduled to pitch Saturday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers but that start will likely be pushed back a day or two if Dempster begins his suspension tonight in San Francisco. Dempster is 6-9 this season with a 4.77 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.
