Zack Greinke was suspended five games for hitting Nick Swisher in the hip with a fastball on Sunday. Greinke pegged Swisher after both sides had been warned following the brawl that erupted when Miguel Olivo - who was also suspended five games - charged the mound. Greinke will likely file an appeal, but even the five-game suspension should only cause a slight change in his schedule. Royals manager Trey Hillman got a one-game suspension, and Ozzie Guillen was hit with a two-game penalty. No Sox players received punishment.


Miguel Olivo was suspended five games for his role in Sunday's brawl with the White Sox. Olivo felt the Sox were throwing at him and charged the mound. As A.J. Pierzynski was trying to hold him back, Olivo landed a shot to the top of his head. Expect Olivo to file an appeal.

I think it's crazy that Olivo and Greinke got this suspension. Whitesox players didn't get anything, it's bogus. I guess when you all look like morons with beach blonde hair and blonde goatees you get away with things."whitesox" what a manly group of guys! lol

greinke hit someone in the 6th, i believe, and it's just the standard manager post-warning suspension for managers...ozzie didn't get one because his player hit olivo to start the fracas.

ozzie did actually get a two game suspension, for admitting that they threw at hitters on purpose!

Miguel Olivo's suspension has been reduced from five games to four and he began serving it Thursday.

Olivo was fined and suspended after charging the mound on August 3. With Olivo unavailable John Buck will see all the action behind the plate.
