Indians' Cabrera begins three-game suspension for part in brawl

BOSTON -- Cleveland infielder Asdrubal Cabrera on Tuesday began serving his three-game suspension for his part in a brawl with the Detroit Tigers.

Fausto Carmona, who's scheduled to pitch Wednesday night, is appealing the six-game suspension handed out when he hit Gary Sheffield with a pitch. Sheffield charged the mound from first base, triggering a bench-clearing brawl.

Cleveland catcher Victor Martinez was given a three-game penalty, but he played Tuesday night pending his appeal.
