Read an updated version of the Morgan suspension story, with quotes, on CSNwashington.com.
Nyjer Morgan has been suspended seven games and fined an undisclosed amount by Major League Baseball for "inappropriate actions" during the ninth inning of Saturday night's game in Philadelphia.
Morgan has appealed the suspension and remains in the Nationals' lineup tonight.
The incident occurred, according to MLB, in the middle of the ninth of Saturday's 8-1 victory over the Phillies when Morgan "intentionally" threw a ball into the stands and struck a fan. Morgan later caught the final out of the game on a fly ball from Jayson Werth, then turned and faked a throw toward the stands.
MLB vice president of on-field operations Bob Watson handed down the punishment today.
