Pittsburgh pitcher Chris Archer was suspended for five games, Cincinnati outfielder Yasiel Puig for two and Reds manager David Bell for one on Tuesday for their parts in a bench-clearing fracas last weekend at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

The commissioner's office said Archer has appealed his penalty and will play pending a decision. Puig and Bell chose not to appeal.

Lester likely to miss 1-2 starts for Cubs

Chicago Cubs ace Jon Lester will likely miss one or two starts because of a left hamstring injury.

Manager Joe Maddon told WSCR-AM on Tuesday that Lester "of course" will miss his scheduled start against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday and might miss a second outing.

Lester was hurt running the bases during a six-run second inning against Pittsburgh on Monday. He hit an RBI double, and the hamstring tightened when he scored from second on Ben Zobrist's single.

Clevinger out at least 6 weeks with back injury

Cleveland Indians starter Mike Clevinger will miss at least six weeks with a back muscle injury.

The Indians placed the right-hander on the 10-day injured list retroactive to Monday. He was pulled from Sunday's 3-1 victory against Toronto after five innings and 75 pitches.
