BALTIMORE – Major League Baseball has upheld Manny Machado’s five-game suspension for throwing a bat on June 8. Machado will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Machado, who was assessed four games with the actual bat throwing and one game for shoving Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson two nights earlier, appealed the suspension on Wednesday.
