ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Minnesota Twins reliever Tyler Duffey was suspended for three games and manager Rocco Baldelli received a one-game ban Thursday for intentionally throwing behind Yermín Mercedes of the Chicago White Sox in a sequence of events that sparked a debate on the importance of the unwritten rules of baseball. Baldelli will miss the second game of the Twins’ makeup doubleheader against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday. Duffey appealed his ban, and the Angels pounded him for four hits and three runs in the fifth inning of the first game. Duffey was ejected when he threw behind Mercedes in the seventh inning Tuesday.
