Blue Jays suspend Kevin Pillar two games

Major League Baseball will begin investigating Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar's "possible use of a homophobic slur", according to a Thursday morning report from Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.

When Freeman was injured in the fifth inning, the umpires initially ruled that Aaron Loup's pitch did not make contact.

The Braves won 8-4 but the result of the game was obviously secondary to the Freeman's injury.

This is a big blow for the Braves, as Freeman leads the team in all of home runs, runs scored and RBI's this season.

The Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays managed to keep their emotions in check in the fourth and final game of a heated series on Thursday night.

"It just stems from a little frustration in myself, just the way this series has been going", he said.

Jace Peterson, a utility player who has spent most of his time at the middle infield spots, started at first base in Thursday night's game against the Blue Jays.

No punches were thrown, but O'Flaherty issued a harsh rebuke to Bautista after the game. He hit a home run with (the Braves holding) a five-run lead and throws the bat around. "It's turned into look-at-me stuff".

The rivalry between the Blue Jays and Rangers was heightened a year ago after Texas infielder Rougned Odor rocked Bautista with a punch during a scuffle. That's the real question.In March, David Denson, the first top-tier baseball player to come out as gay, retired from the sport at 22.The Braves don't have any infielders in Triple-A Gwinnett now on Atlanta's 40-man roster, so they would have to purchase the contract for somebody in that role. "I've seen it from him enough".

"I'm surprised he's ready to fight again after what happened previous year".

"He did as a favour, Bautista", Gibbons said.

Nick Markakis had a two-run single and Suzuki followed with a drive into the left-field seats for his second homer of the season, putting the Braves ahead 6-0 before Biagini finally recorded an out.

The Blue Jays also had a tough night on the basepaths. He appeared to be in pain as he ran the bases and didn't return in the bottom of the inning. Gibbons said he expects Ceciliani will be placed on the disabled list. Also, 3B Josh Donaldson will need a bit longer to recover from a calf injury that's kept him out more than a month. "I might have jumped the gun saying he'd be back for the weekend", Gibbons conceded.

The Blue Jays are frustrated after giving up 27 runs in three straight losses. The Braves hoped offseason addition Sean Rodriguez would have been the fill-in for Freeman this season, but Rodriguez may miss the full season with a shoulder injury sustained when a vehicle he was driving was rammed by a stolen police auto in Miami on January 28.The tension in Wednesday's game didn't end with Pillar's outburst, however.

Braves: RH Julio Teheran (3-3, 4.08) is coming off a strong performance against the Marlins, allowing just three hits over six scoreless innings.

Jace Peterson said something to Bautista as he rounded first, and Suzuki was waiting for Bautista when he touched home. Not only did Marcus Stroman hit the first homer of his career in the fourth inning, he went opposite field to do so.
