 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Padres right-hander Chris Young dropped the appeal of his five-game suspension for his part in a bench-clearing brawl at Chicago on June 16, and began serving the penalty on Thursday.
That means if Young wins the online voting for the final NL All-Star roster spot, he'd appear in the Midsummer Classic while under suspension. Young will sit out four games before the break and the first game after it. He led four other pitchers with a few hours remaining in the online voting, which was due to end Thursday evening.
The 6-foot-10 right-hander made his final start before the break on Wednesday night, striking out nine and holding the Marlins to five hits in seven innings of a 1-0 win. He didn't get the decision, but lowered his ERA to 2.00, tying Brad Penny of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best in the majors.
Young hit Chicago's Derrek Lee with a pitch on June 16, setting off the brawl.
Lee, convinced that Young was throwing at him on purpose, had words with the pitcher as he walked to first base, then threw a punch. Young swung back and the benches emptied.
