Major League Soccer suspended FC Dallas forward Fabian Castillo for four games and fined him an undisclosed amount after making contact with a referee last month.

The incident occurred following the conclusion of a game against the Portland Timbers on June 11. Castillo was issued a red card for violent conduct, resulting in a two-game suspension, and the MLS Disciplinary Committee tacked on two additional games.

Castillo, 22, will sit out three remaining games (July 4 against Philadelphia, July 19 vs. New England and July 27 at Vancouver) after missing Sunday's draw with Columbus.

Castillo will be eligible to play in a July 8 US Open Cup quarterfinal match against the Carolina Railhawks, as the suspension applies only to league matches. Castillo has scored five goals and recorded 19 shots on goal in 17 games this season. FC Dallas currently sits in fourth place in the Western Conference.

Castillo's appeal of the suspension via the MLS players union was unsuccessful.
