Dempster will also pay an undisclosed fine. [embedgallery id=204871]

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.
