BALTIMORE (AP) Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Monday for having a foreign substance on his arm during a game in Miami.

Matusz immediately appealed and was in uniform for Baltimore's game against the Houston Astros on Monday afternoon. He will continue to pitch until his appeal is heard.

Matusz entered Saturday's game against the Marlins in the 12th inning. Miami manager Dan Jennings asked umpire Paul Emmel to inspect Matusz's right arm, and Emmel ejected the pitcher.
