MLB has suspended Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Brandon Workman for six games for throwing behind Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays, the league announced Tuesday.

Workman threw a high pitch behind Longoria in the sixth inning of Boston's game against the Rays on Saturday, after Tampa Bay starter David Price had already hit David Ortiz and Mike Carp, and the latter led to both teams' benches clearing. Workman was ejected from the game, but later said the pitch had slipped from his hands due to wet conditions.

The right-hander will appeal the suspension and make his scheduled start on Wednesday, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
