Manny Machado has been suspended for four games and fined $2,500 for charging the mound and fighting in Tuesday's game against the Royals.

The MLB handed Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura a 9-game suspension for intentionally throwing at Machado and fighting. 

Both players have elected to appeal the suspensions.

During Tuesday night's matchup at Camden Yards, Machado stormed the mound after being struck by a 99 mph fastball in the fifth inning.
