NEW YORK (AP) - Texas Rangers pitcher Vicente Padilla was suspended Tuesday for seven games and Athletics outfielder Nick Swisher was given three games for an incident that occurred in the top of the first inning of Sunday's game in Oakland.
Padilla was suspended for intentionally throwing at Swisher, who charged the mound. Both players also received undisclosed fines.
Both suspensions are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, when the Rangers play at Minnesota and the A's host Seattle, but they could appeal and put off the penalty.
