Clayton Kershaw, Joe Torre and Bob Schaefer draw suspensions

July 21, 2010 |  2:58 pm

Clayton Kershaw received a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing at Aaron Rowand of the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night, the commissioner's office announced.

Manager Joe Torre and bench coach Bob Schaefer were also disciplined, as each drew a one-game suspension for their actions in that same game.

Kershaw has elected to file an appeal, meaning his suspension will be suspended until the process is complete.

Torre, who was punished because Kershaw threw at Rowand after both benches were warned, will serve his suspension Wednesday night when the Dodgers conclude their three-game series against the Giants.

Schaefer, who was thrown out of Tuesday's game for arguing that Danny Bautista should have been ejected for throwing at Russell Martin's head, is expected to serve his suspension on Thursday when the Dodgers open a four-game series against the New York Mets.
