NEW YORK, June 30 (UPI) -- Major League Baseball has suspended Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Kline for four games for arguing a balk call during a June 27 game at Camden Yards.
Kline was also fined an undisclosed amount of money. He was ejected from the game after charging at umpire Marty Foster, after Foster called a balk on Kline during the eighth inning of a game against the New York Yankees.
Bob Watson, vice president of On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, said Kline was being disciplined for "his inappropriate and aggressive actions."
Unless the Major League Baseball Player's Association appeals the ruling, Kline's suspension would begin Thursday night, when the Orioles continue a home stand against the Cleveland Indians.
