Seattle Mariners outfielder Keon Broxton has been suspended two games by Major League Baseball after his thrown batting glove made contact with an umpire during Monday's 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees at T-Mobile Park.
Broxton is appealing the decision.
The 29-year-old was upset when a borderline pitch from Yankees starter J.A. Happ was called strike three by Gonzalez to end the second inning.
Gonzalez was struck by one of Broxton's batting gloves as the Mariners right fielder threw them behind himself as he was walking away from home plate. The 29-year-old was immediately ejected from the game and replaced by Mallex Smith.
In 56 games with three teams, Broxton is hitting.184/.252/.327 with six homers and 14 RBI.
