Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ryan Borucki suspended three games

 30 days ago

Major League Baseball suspended Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ryan Borucki for three games Thursday for intentionally hitting Tampa’s Kevin Kiermaier in a game earlier this week.

Borucki will appeal the suspension.

Borucki nailed Kiermaier in the middle of the back with a 93-mph pitch in the bottom of the eighth inning of Wednesday’s loss to the Rays. The Jays were upset that Kiermaier picked up and did not return a scouting card dropped by Jays catcher Alejandro Kirk during Monday’s game.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine. Montoyo will serve his suspension Thursday night, when the visiting Blue Jays open a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins.
