Archer was suspended five games for throwing at the Reds' Derek Dietrich on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The incident ignited a benches-clearing brawl and led to suspensions for Yasiel Puig and Reds manager David Bell. Archer is eligible to appeal his suspension. Depending on the timing of a potential appeal, the suspension may amount to nothing more than an extra day of rest between starts for Archer.
