|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Royals relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera has been suspended five games after throwing behind Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie Sunday, while starting pitcher Yordano Ventura has been fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Lawrie with a pitch Saturday.
Lawrie has been surrounded by controversy after a hard slide into second base Friday injured the knee of Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar. Both pitchers were ejected in their respective games.
Herrera, who is appealing his suspension according to the Kansas City Star, has tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in six appearances. Ventura's avoidance of his suspension keeps him in line to face Chris Sale Thursday.
Athletics' Josh Reddick: No way Kelvin Herrera's pitch just slipped
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) The Royals and Athletics are still not playing nice after this weekend's series. Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera threw behind third baseman Brett Lawrie Sunday, the second straight day Lawrie was targeted after he took out shortstop Alcides Escobar at second base Friday with what Kansas City called a dirty slide.
Athletics slugger Josh Reddick isn't buying on Herrera claiming the ball just slipped out of his hand, according to MLB Network Radio.
"The HBP Saturday should have been it. For them to do the unprofessional thing Herrera did is inexcusable," Reddick said. "[Herrera] saying the ball slipping is a complete joke, no way that ball is slipping. Gimme a break."
Herrera was ejected immediately for his part in the back and forth.
Some claimed Herrera was retaliating for Scott Kazmir hitting Lorenzo Cain in the foot to start the game.
"Knowing there are warnings out, Kazmir's not going to hit someone in the foot intentionally," Reddick said.
