Oakland Athletics OF Ramon Laureano will appeal his six-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Houston Astros hitting coach Álex Cintrón has received a 20-game suspension and a fine for his role in a benches-clearing brawl at Oakland. 

Cintrón’s suspension is the longest for an on-field transgression in 15 years, since Texas pitcher Kenny Rogers received 20 games for his altercation with two cameramen in 2005. 

In addition, Athletics outfielder Ramon Laureano was given a six-game suspension and a fine. He is appealing the punishment.
