Colon, Manuel Suspended 5, 1 Games Respectively

(SN Report #499) - As a result of last weeks bench-clearing incident with the Baltimore Orioles, Bartolo Colon and Jerry Manuel were handed suspensions by major league baseball on Wednesday.

Last Thursday, May 15 against the Orioles at U.S. Cellular Field, Colon was ejected after hitting Jerry Hairston in the ninth, one inning after a warning was issued when Jorge Julio hit Magglio Ordonez in the back with a fastball.

Colon will be suspended for five games, which will cause him to miss his next start against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Manuel recieved a one game suspension and will serve it on Friday, the first of a three-game set against the Tigers.
