(NEW YORK) — Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has dropped his appeal and will begin serving his five-game suspesnion from Major League Baseball for his part in Wednesday’s scuffle with the San Diego Paders.
Arenado charged the mound after Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind his back during the Rockies’ 6-4 win.
A Rockies’ spokesman confirmed Arenado would start the suspension beginning with Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals.
Arenado will be replaced at third base with Ryan McMahon.
