Willson Contreras Suspended Two Games by Major League Baseball

Cubs catcher Willson Contreras was suspended two-games by Major League Baseball on Saturday for "inappropriate actions" stemming from a tirade and ejection during the Cubs' win Friday against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field. Both Lackey and Willson Contreras didn't like the call and argued with umpire Jordan Baker.

The hope on appeal is that Torre takes into consideration that Contreras was the third party in this disagreement between Baker and Lackey.

Contreras and starter John Lackey, who also was ejected, both received undisclosed fines.

Contreras has appealed the suspension and will be able to play until the appeal is heard and ruled upon. The catcher has tallied 21 home runs and 73 RBI so far this season. It bounced up and hit Baker's leg. "He is emotional. We are all working on having him curb that a bit. That's a big part of why he's so good".

"(Baker) had no argument back", Lackey said after the game. "Those don't grow on trees".

"It's impossible", the manager said. But after outscoring the New York Mets 39-14 in a three-game sweep, the Cubs got enough big hits to improve to 9-4 against the Cardinals this year.
