NEW YORK (AP) -Kyle Farnsworth's suspension was cut from three games to one Friday by Major League Baseball following an appeal by the New York Yankees reliever.
Bob Watson, baseball's vice president in charge of discipline, announced the original penalty April 19, two days after Farnsworth threw a fastball behind the neck of Boston Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez. Farnsworth wasn't ejected and said the ball slipped.
John McHale Jr., executive vice president for administration in the commissioner's office, heard Farnsworth's appeal Tuesday.
Farnsworth was to serve the suspension Friday, baseball spokesman Rich Levin said.
