MLB reacts to Joe Kelly's 8-game suspension
Major League Baseball dropped the hammer on Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly by suspending him for eight games after he threw close to the heads of Houston Astros infielders Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman on Tuesday.
The ban is the equivalent of a 22-game suspension in a normal 162-game schedule. Here is how some current and former MLB players have reacted to the news.
Marcus Stroman, Mets
Mike Clevinger, Indians
Phil Hughes, longtime Yankees/Twins hurler
Keynan Middleton, Angels
Jered Weaver, longtime Angels starter
Jimmy Nelson, Dodgers
Sam Tuivailala, free agent
Cody Decker, former Padres infielder
And finally, Angels manager Joe Maddon elected not to wade into the discussion despite being asked.
