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.
