Nyjer Morgan Suspended For Seven Games For Throwing Ball Into Stands

Nyjer Morgan's tumultuous second season with the Washington Nationals continues to be, well, tumultuous. Major League Baseball has just announced that Morgan will be suspended seven games for throwing a ball into the stands at the end of last Saturday's 8-1 win over the Phillies.

Why seven games? Apparently, Morgan struck a fan on his throw.

Morgan is appealing his suspension and is in the lineup tonight.
