Bryce Harper's suspension for brawl reportedly reduced to 3 games after appeal

BY Chris Bahr • May 31, 2017

Major League Baseball has reduced Bryce Harper’s suspension for Monday’s brawl from four games to three games, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Harper charged the mound after being hit by a fastball from Giants reliever Hunter Strickland, with each player landing a punch before the benches emptied.

Strickland was suspended for six games on Tuesday, though he, like Harper, appealed and remained active in the second game of the teams’ three-game series.

Harper would miss tonight’s game in San Francisco and Friday and Saturday’s games in Oakland.
