Peralta suspended 8 games for pine tar, he appeals (Yahoo! Sports)
WASHINGTON (AP) Tampa Bay reliever Joel Peralta has been suspended eight games for having pine tar on his glove.
Major League Baseball issued the penalty Thursday. Peralta has appealed, and can continue to play until the appeal process is complete. The Rays were playing at Washington on Thursday night.
Peralta was ejected from Tuesday night's game in Washington after umpires found pine tar on his mitt.
The incident led to a verbal spat between managers Joe Maddon of the Rays and Davey Johnson of the Nationals.
