Houston Astros right-hander Brian Abreu, who was disciplined by the Major League Baseball office, appealed the decision.
The Major League Baseball Secretariat officially announced on the 23rd (Korean time) that Abreu appealed his disciplinary action ahead of Game 6 of the American League Championship Series between Houston and the Texas Rangers.
It was reported that Abreu conveyed his intention to appeal at a meeting held that day with labor and management representatives from both clubs and the Major League.
Previously, Abreu was suspended for two games by the Major League Baseball office. The problem was that in Game 5 of the series, he threw a threatening ball to opposing batter Adolis Garcier and hit him in the arm.
At that time, Garcia, who was hit by a dead ball, ran toward Houston catcher Martin Maldonado, causing a bench clearing.
The referee acknowledged Abreu’s intentionality and ordered him to leave. The secretariat also appears to have acknowledged intentionality and imposed disciplinary action.
He officially appealed the suspension and was allowed to pitch in Game 6 held on this day.스포츠토토
The Major League Baseball office announced that the appeal hearing is expected to take place within 48 hours.
The hearing may be held as early as a day later, but there is also a possibility that no conclusion will be reached at this time.
In fact, there is a higher possibility that no disciplinary action will be applied in this series.
If Houston advances to the World Series, the disciplinary action will likely be applied in the World Series, and if they fall in the Series, this disciplinary action will be transferred to the 2024 season.
It is unknown what the final conclusion will be, but it is good news for Houston. Abreu has been pitching well this postseason, allowing one run in 6 1/3 innings in seven games. He participated in all games of this series except Game 4. He has two holds.
