Ubaldo Jimenez suspended five games

Ubaldo's encounter, or more specifically his fastball's encounter, with Troy Tulowitzki has resulted in a five game suspension from the league. For a pitcher, this amounts to one game, but given the nature of early season scheduling, it is possible the Indians could appeal (according to Hoynes the team will appeal) initially and then drop their appeal when it is most convenient to throw in an emergency starter. All in all, a pretty light punishment for the incident.
