Cameron suspension down to one game
Brewers center fielder Mike Cameron’s suspension was reduced from two games to one after Major League Baseball officials heard his appeal on Friday. Cameron will sit out Saturday’s game against the Tigers at Comerica Park.
The discipline stemmed from Cameron’s argument at home plate following a called third strike in Atlanta on June 6, and two days later he was suspended two games and fined an undisclosed amount for making contact with umpire Marvin Hudson. Cameron argued that Hudson initiated the contact.
Cameron declined to answer questions about MLB’s ruling prior to Friday’s game, when he was slotted in the six-hole in the opener of a three-game Interleague Series.
“I’m playing today, sitting tomorrow,” said Cameron, who was quickly asked whether he thought the ruling was fair. “I’m not ever going to say it’s fair, but it is what it is.”
Cameron will take batting practice with the team on Saturday but then must vacate the clubhouse at game time.
