Stetson Allie Placed on the DL; Altoona Suspensions Announced

Stetson Allie has been placed on the Altoona disabled list with a concussion, retroactive 6/19. Kelson Brown has been activated off the DL to take Allie’s place on the roster. Allie was hit by a pitch on Wednesday, although he played another inning before being removed from the game. He was removed right after the brawl the next inning, so the injury could have taken place then.

UPDATE: Cory Giger says it happened during the brawl.

The Eastern League has also handed down suspensions for the brawl in Altoona’s game on Wednesday. Keon Broxton, Jarek Cunningham, Gift Ngoepe, Andy Vasquez, and Yao-Hsun Yang have all received three game suspensions. They won’t all serve those suspensions at the same time. Cunningham, Ngoepe, and Yang will begin their suspensions following the completion of tonight’s suspended game in Portland. Altoona has a second game tonight, which will be the first game of their suspensions. Broxton and Vasquez will probably serve their suspensions after the completion of the first wave of suspensions.

    I didn’t know that the Brewers sent Maldonado to double A.

        If I was dispensing justice in the Eastern League (and obviously I’m not), I’d give that pitcher a month off or more for beaning an opposing player, then throwing behind another guy’s head and running away to the back of the brawl. I have a problem with someone who’s willing to make a statement by making a possibly career-ending pitch and not even manning up & taking responsibility for it
