Major League Baseball suspended Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco three games for bumping umpire Chad Fairchild in Monday’s game against the Padres.

Mesoraco didn’t necessarily go all “Brett Lawrie like” on Fairchild, but was ejected in the game for poking him in the chest protector. It all started in the top of the third inning when he felt Fairchild wasn’t calling strikes. Luckily, Dusty Baker got out there in time to stop things from getting out of hand.

The former first round pick by the Reds in the 2007 draft plans to appeal the suspension. On the season Mesoraco has posted a .221/.299/.379 line with five home runs.
