BALTIMORE, Md. - Major League Baseball decided today to uphold a 5-game suspension of Orioles third baseman Manny Machado.
The Baltimore Orioles announced the verdict on Twitter June 30. Machado is set to begin the suspension the same night.
Earlier this month Machado appealed the suspension, which was implemented after Machado intentionally threw his bat on the field during a June 8 game against Oakland.
