This press release from Major League Baseball:

Pitcher LaTroy Hawkins of the New York Yankees has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Luke Scott during the top of the sixth inning of the Tuesday, May 20th game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium. Bob Watson, Vice President of On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

The suspension of Hawkins had been scheduled to begin tonight, when the Yankees host the Orioles. However, he has elected to file an appeal. Thus, the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
