AJ Burnett was suspended 6 games for the pitch he threw up and in to Nelson Cruz in his start against Texas (the same game Padilla hit Tex twice). AJ's appealing the suspension, so we'll see how that goes. 6 games is only one start, and presumably they'd plug in Phil Hughes to pitch for him, so not the end of the world. Padilla didn't get a suspension, but Texas is trying to outright release him, so that's probably why.
