 DENVER (AP) -San Diego's Michael Barrett was suspended for one game and fined $1,500 Tuesday, two days after he was ejected from a game against Philadelphia.
Barrett asked the players' union to appeal the penalty, meaning he cannot be punished until after a hearing and a decision.
Barrett and Padres manager Bud Black were ejected in the fifth inning of San Diego's 9-0 loss after Barrett was called out on strikes by plate umpire Chris Guccione and then argued.
``I would like to get on the phone with MLB and share my case with them,'' Barrett said Tuesday's game against Colorado. ``If I can and they will listen without having to go through the appeal process, than I'd be happy about that.''
Barrett added, ``I wasn't real happy with the report that was filed by the umpire. If it was just one game and the report was fair, I probably wouldn't debate or argue it.''
Barrett was acquired last month from the Cubs after a stormy stay in Chicago that included a fight with pitcher Carlos Zambrano.
``The way things have gone with my career I guess I expect a little more punishment than what most people would get,'' Barrett said.
