Brewers RP Will Smith will have appeal heard next week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brewers reliever Will Smith's appeal of an eight-game suspension has been pushed to next week and will be done in person, he said Wednesday, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. An MLB rep will come to Milwaukee to conduct the hearing.

Smith was handed an eight-game suspension last week after he was ejected from a May 21 outing against the Braves for having a foreign substance on his arm.

Brewers RP Will Smith suspended eight games, will appeal
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Brewers left-hander Will Smith has been suspended eight games by Major League Baseball. Smith is being disciplined for having a foreign substance on his arm during Thursday's game against the Braves.

Smith will appeal the suspension, MLB announced, meaning he should be available for Friday's game. He was ejected from the game on Thursday in the seventh inning when Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez noticed the substance and asked the officials for Smith's removal.

Brewers' Counsell: It's 'probably likely' Will Smith will be suspended
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Brewers reliever Will Smith is likely facing a suspension for being ejected Thursday night for having a foreign substance discovered on his forearm, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel.

"That's pretty real," said manager Craig Counsell, when asked if he is expecting a suspension. "We know that's probably likely."

Smith was tossed by crew chief Jim Joyce in the seventh inning of Thursday's 10-1 loss to the Braves after Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez asked officials to examine the glistening substance on his forearm.

After the game, Smith revealed that he had a mixture of sunscreen and rosin on his arm while warming up in the bullpen, and acknowledged he forgot to wipe it off after he was summoned to replace Matt Garza in the seventh inning because he was in a hurry.

Counsell noted that players everywhere in the league, including some on the Braves do the same thing to improve their grip on the ball.

"It happens everywhere in the league, and it happens on (Gonzalez's) team, too," Counsell said.

In 2012, Joel Peralta, who was with the Rays at the time, was slapped with an eight-game suspension for using pine tar to improve his grip. Last season, Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was suspended 10 games by Major League Baseball after he was caught using pine tar in an April game against Boston. Because Pineda's incident was more recent, Smith could be facing a suspension close to 10 games.

"Who knows? That's MLB's decision. It's not my call," Smith said.

Brewers' Will Smith ejected for having substance on arm
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Will Smith was ejected from Thursday's game against the Braves after a foreign substance was discovered on his arm.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez called upon the officials to examine Smith, and crew chief Jim Joyce ejected the pitcher after checking for the substance. Smith was replaced by Neal Cotts, who immediately surrendered an RBI single.

"It was chilly and kind of windy," Smith said after the game, per the Braves Radio Network. "I had sunscreen rosin on my arm. Just forgot to wipe it off before I went out and pitched."

Smith, who didn't complete the at-bat of the second batter he faced on Thursday after hitting the first batter with a pitch, came into the game with a 2.13 ERA and 18:6 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings. He was visibly angry and appeared to say something to the Braves bench before he left.

"I'm a competitor," Smith said, per the Journal Sentinel. "You want to stay in the game and pitch. It was a big situation.  I was pissed I got thrown out."

Brewers lefty Will Smith posting interesting splits as reliever
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Left-handed reliever Will Smith has been posting some interesting splits this season, dominating right-handed batters while being average against lefties, reports MLB.com.

Entering Sunday, Smith has held righties to an .087 batting average (2 for 23) and lefties to .286 (6 for 21). 

"I'll take Will Smith against any left-hander in the league, and that hasn't changed," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "Maybe I'll try to extend him a little bit and give him full innings instead of trying to match him up so much. He's certainly capable of it." 

Smith pitched one inning in Sunday's loss to the Mets, retiring two lefties and one righty while not allowing a hit.
