Player Notes
The appeal hearing for Brian Matusz's eight-game suspension is scheduled for June 3.

Advice: Matusz was delivered the eight-game sentence from Major League Baseball on Monday after getting caught with a sticky grip-enhancer on his arm Saturday during an appearance against the Marlins. It's doubtful the lefty reliever will be able to get it reduced, but he's been able to continue pitching while the process plays out.

Major League Baseball suspended Brian Matusz eight games for having a foreign substance on his arm.

Advice: Matusz was caught using a sticky grip-enhancer Saturday night during an appearance against the Marlins, and an eight-game suspension is the going rate for such a crime. The left-hander has appealed and will be available out of the Orioles' bullpen until that appeal is heard.

Brian Matusz was ejected from Saturday's game for having a foreign substance on his right arm.

Advice: Milwaukee's Will Smith was suspended eight games for the same offense earlier this week and Matusz should expect a similar punishment. The up-and-down Matusz carries a losing record (1-2) and has almost as many walks (ten) as strikeouts (11) this season.
