Tigers Suspend Minor League Pitcher Saupold For 5 Games

DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit Tigers have suspended minor league pitcher Warwick Saupold for five games after he was reportedly arrested last weekend in Toledo, Ohio.

Saupold was arrested following an altercation at a bar in Toledo, according to an arrest report from the Toledo Police Department obtained by ESPN.com.

The Tigers released a statement Thursday night saying they were suspending Saupold after reviewing the details of last weekend’s incident. The Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens, Saupold’s team, had only five games remaining in their season, including Thursday’s at Columbus.

The 26-year-old Saupold, who is from Perth, Australia, made his major league debut this year, going 1-1 with a 7.45 ERA in six relief appearances for the Tigers.
