OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Athletics center fielder Ramon Laureano had a six-game suspension reduced to four games after appealing a penalty for his role in a benches-clearing brawl with the rival Houston Astros. Major League Baseball said a settlement was reached and the A’s were informed of the decision. Laureano began the four-game suspension Friday night and will miss a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants. He will be eligible to play Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
