Cornejo and Trammell suspended

Postby WebHamster » Fri Apr 09, 2004 4:00 pm

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Although the Detroit Tigers have started the season with four straight wins, they received some bad news from Major League Baseball on Friday with notice of suspensions for pitcher Nate Cornejo and manager Alan Trammell.

Cornejo was suspended five games and Trammell was given a one-game suspension, with each being fined an undisclosed amount. Both men were disciplined for their actions during a spring training game between the Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, Florida on March 29.

Cornejo threw a pitch at Philadelphia's Ricky Ledee in the bottom of the sixth inning after a warning was issued.

Earlier, Philadelphia righthander Vicente Padilla plunked Detroit's Carlos Guillen with a pitch. In the seventh inning Phillies reliever Rheal Cormier hit Tigers catcher Brandon Inge with a pitch, but he wasn't ejected.

Cornejo and Trammell were each scheduled to begin their suspensions on Saturday, but Cornejo may appeal the decision.
