Orioles RP Brian Matusz loses appeal, keeps 8-game suspension
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Orioles reliever Brian Matusz lost his appeal Friday and will serve an eight-game suspension for being caught with a foreign substance on his arm during an appearance on May 23, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. 

Matusz appealed the suspension in a hearing held in Houston on Wednesday that was attended by executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter, per MASNSports.com.

Brewers pitcher Will Smith, who was also given an eight-game suspension for the same infraction, saw his reduced to six games Friday after he made an appeal. 

Matusz can be with the team and participate in pregame activities, but can't be on the bench once the game begins.

Orioles RP Brian Matusz receives 8-game suspension
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Orioles reliever Brian Matusz was issued an eight-game suspension by MLB Monday as punishment for being caught with a "foreign substance" on his arm during Saturday's game against the Marlins. 

Matusz was ejected in the 12th inning on Saturday after it was brought to the umpires' attention that Matusz had a visible substance on his arm. When the home plate umpire determined it was an illegal substance, he discussed with Orioles manager Buck Showalter briefly before ejecting Matusz from the game.

Matusz will appeal the suspension, which is the same doled out to Brewers reliever Will Smith after he was caught with an illegal substance on his arm earlier in the week.

"Each case is different and that's why you have the appeal process to make sure it's not just some blanket punishment," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "I'm sure that's why it's in place, to find out if this is different. You've got to start somewhere and that's why the process is in place. And when it's over and said and they decide how many games it is compared to everything else, I'll probably be a little more opinionated on it."

Matusz is 1-2 with a 3.18 ERA in 14 appearances this season.

Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz ejected for foreign substance on arm
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz was ejected in the 12th inning of Saturday's game against the Marlins for having a foreign substance visible on his arm.

The home plate umpire went out to the mound after noticing something on Matusz's arm. When he determined it was an illegal substance, he discussed with manager Buck Showalter briefly before ejecting Matusz from the game.

"I have my own personal opinions about the issue but right now with emotions running high, we're going to let this settle and address questions at a later time," Matusz said to MASN Sports.

Matusz went 2/3 of an inning with a strikeout before getting tossed.
