BALTIMORE (AP) - Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will have a hearing Wednesday on his appeal of a five-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball.
Machado received the suspension on June 10 for intentionally throwing his bat onto the field in a June 8 game against the Oakland Athletics. Machado immediately appealed the ruling, and the 21-year-old will finally get to tell his side of the story on Wednesday.
The hearing will be held in Baltimore. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette is scheduled to attend, but manager Buck Showalter will not be there.
Machado says he hopes to have the suspension shortened to four games at the most. He also received an undisclosed fine.
