Boston's Workman disciplined

Pitcher Brandon Workman of the Boston Red Sox has received a six-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays, following a warning, in the top of the sixth inning of the Friday, May 30th game at Fenway Park. Joe Garagiola, Jr., Senior Vice President of Standards & Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Unless appealed, Workman's suspension is scheduled to begin tonight, when the Red Sox are to continue their series at Cleveland. If appealed, Workman's suspension will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
