Jacoby reportedly got into a heated exchange with the umpiring crew following a 4-1 loss to the Red Sox. Hall of Fame writer Peter Gammons reported late last week that members of the Blue Jays coaching staff began yelling at the umpires after the game.
Umpires and the visiting team use the same tunnel after games at Fenway Park. It wasn't immediately clear what happened during the encounter between Jacoby and Bill Miller's umpiring crew, and more details are expected to be revealed either at the hearing or shortly before.
The suspension was set to begin Monday night but the Blue Jays have appealed the decision, which means Jacoby was in uniform for the series opener against New York.
