Ryan Tepera’s Suspension Reduced, Kicks in Today

Chicago Cubs

Ryan Tepera’s obnoxiously long suspension for throwing behind Brandon Woodruff has been reduced from three games to two (ESPN), and he’ll start it today. That worked out well, since he pitched yesterday anyway.

As for the original incident, if you’re still unaware, you can read all about it here. I’m just annoyed by the whole thing, which is an extension of the Brewers being unwilling or unable to pitch safely inside on Willson Contreras, and I’m kinda glad Contreras isn’t starting today against Woodruff so there isn’t even a chance of another HBP (maybe intentional this time).
