CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been suspended six games and fined for throwing at Kansas Citys Billy Butler. Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning of Friday nights game after he threw a ball at Butlers head. Carrasco had just given up a grand slam to Melky Cabrera and took out his frustration on Butler, who managed to avoid the rising fastball. The Indians said Monday that Carrasco will appeal his suspension and undisclosed fine and plans to start Wednesday night in Boston. "Its standard when that happens. Hes appealing and hes going to be able to pitch here," Cleveland manager Manny Acta said at Fenway Park before his teams scheduled game against the Red Sox. Carrasco said he was upset that Cabrera stood at home plate and admired his homer, but denied the pitch to Butler was intentional. http://www.hockeybluejacketsshop.com/White-Artem-Anisimov-Jersey/.
