Mariners pitcher Cliff Lee suspended for first five games

Mariners pitcher Cliff Lee received a five game suspension and fined and undisclosed amount for plunking Diamondbacks catcher Chris Snyder, which ensued a benches clearing brawl.

If Lee doesn't appeal the suspension, it will begin Opening Day, which is April 5th. He may be able to appeal it for a lesser sentence, so he doesn't miss a start, but for now he will serve it in its entirety.
