Appeals date next up for Barrett, Anderson

Cubs catcher Michael Barrett and White Sox outfielder Brian Anderson could begin serving their suspensions stemming from a May 20 brawl at U.S. Cellular Field by the end of next week.

The date for their appeals will be set today, with hearings expected by mid-to-late next week, according to Bob Lenaghan, assistant general counsel for the players association. Players will begin serving their suspensions once a ruling is handed down by arbitrator John McHale Jr., an executive vice president of administration for Major League Baseball.

In punishment handed out Friday by MLB disciplinarian Bob Watson, Barrett was suspended 10 games for punching Sox baserunner A.J. Pierzynski, sparking the second-inning brawl. Anderson was suspended five games for punching Cubs first baseman John Mabry during the brawl. Both players are appealing to have their suspensions reduced.

Pierzynski is seeking to have his entire $2,000 fine thrown out. Sox third-base coach Joey Cora, who did not have the right to appeal, served his two-game suspension Friday and Saturday at Toronto. Manager Ozzie Guillen coached third in Cora's absence.

Barrett is expected to have only two or three games removed from his sentence, though the union is seeking a bigger reduction.
