Tampa Bay's Peralta disciplined

|

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Joel Peralta has been suspended for eight games for possessing a foreign substance on his glove prior to the bottom of the eighth inning of his Club’s Tuesday, June 19th game against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park.  Joe Garagiola, Jr., Senior Vice President of Standards and On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Peralta had been scheduled to begin serving his suspension tonight, when Tampa Bay is to conclude its series at Washington.  However, he has elected to file an appeal.  Thus, the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the appeal process is complete.
