Alfonzo discipline rescinded

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that the 100-game suspension issued to catcher Eliezer Alfonzo on September 14, 2011 has been rescinded by mutual agreement of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association.

Alfonzo’s grievance challenging his suspension raised issues that were nearly identical to those resolved in the Arbitration involving Ryan Braun.  It is not anticipated that any other future cases will be impacted by the circumstances raised in the grievances of these two players.

Alfonzo, who is currently on the roster of Triple-A Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League, is eligible to play immediately.
