Boston's Dempster suspended 5 games for hitting A-Rod

NEW YORK -- Ryan Dempster of the Boston Red Sox has been suspended for five games and fined $2,500 by Major League Baseball for intentionally hitting Yankees star Alex Rodriguez with a pitch.
 
The penalty was announced Tuesday by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. He also fined Yankees manager Joe Girardi $5,000 for arguing with plate umpire Brian O'Nora on Sunday night.
 
The Red Sox have two games off in the next week so Dempster is unlikely to even miss a start.
Dempster could still play if he decides to appeal the penalty.
