I was just wondering how long these appeals actually take? I mean the fight was quite some time ago and I haven't heard anything on Brian Anderson's suspension (or Barrett's for that matter). At this rate, Barrett's suspension may actually be served the next time the Sox play the Cubs

Your appeal is heard at the MLB offices in NY, and scheduled for the next time your team has a scheduled trip there, unless there are no further games scheduled there, in which case the player has to fly to New York on the first available off day at his own expense.

I'm pretty sure they have discontinued that blatantly unfair practice. That's the way it used to be. The hearing was in NYC and then the Yanks or Mets got to face the shorthanded opponent.

I can't find any authoritative support, but I think the players involved now have up to 30 (?) days to have their appeal heard. I think a lot of this is handled by conference call.

I'm pretty sure I remembered that from the current CBA, but I don't have time to look it up right now.

Hopefully Brian's impending suspension doesn't cut short his mini-hot streak. And yeah, 3-6 with a double and a homer over 1+ games constitues a hot streak for him at this point.

Yeah, I know, that would blow if he gets hot and then all of a sudden the suspension comes up

He should've just taken the 5 games. He would have only missed probably 2 games that he would start, anyway.

(1) Any Player who believes that he has a justifiable complaint
regarding such discipline may, within 7 days of his receipt of written
notification of the discipline, appeal in writing to the President
and Chief Operating Officer, if the discipline was imposed by the
Vice President, On-Field Operations, or to the Commissioner, if the
discipline was imposed by him, for a hearing. Upon receipt of the
notice of appeal, the President and Chief Operating Officer or the
Commissioner, as the case may be, shall designate a time and place
for hearing the appeal, which hearing shall be commenced within 10
days from the date of receipt of the appeal. If the disputed discipline
involves a fine equal to or less than $1,000 and does not involve a
suspension, the hearing shall be held by conference call; provided,
however, that, if the Player elects, the hearing shall be held in person
and in New York if the Player’s Club is scheduled to be in New
York within thirty days from the date of the appeal, or if the Player
makes himself available in New York during that 30-day period.
Such hearing shall be conducted in accordance with the Rules of
Procedure attached hereto as Appendix A. The President and Chief
Operating Officer or the Commissioner, as the case may be, shall
render a written decision as soon as practicable following the conclusion
of such hearing, and may affirm, modify, or revoke the disciplinary
action originally imposed. The decision by the President
and Chief Operating Officer or the Commissioner, as the case may
be, shall constitute full, final and complete disposition of the complaint
and shall have the same effect as a Grievance decision of the
Arbitration Panel.

So it's the player's choice whether to have it in New York or to go through the appeal on the phone. I'd imagine the players really wanting to make a good impression would elect to meet in person.

No, it is the players choice if the fine is less than $1,000.

Yeah, but otherwise the office designates "a time and place". I assume that doesn't just mean New York.

Here's how I read it

York within thirty days from the date of the appeal, or if the Player
makes himself available in New York during that 30-day period.The player may choose a phone call or meeting in New York if it's less than $1000. Otherwise, whoever assigned the suspension gets to pick the time and place. I'd imagine there are a few lawyers on the board who might have a more educated opinion.

MLB will waive it to the next time the team is in New York, they always have when it occurs early in the season.
