ATLANTA (AP) Milwaukee Brewers reliever Will Smith was suspended for eight games on Friday for having a foreign substance on his right arm during a game at Atlanta.

Major League Baseball said Smith plans to appeal, so the penalty is on hold. Smith will be available for Friday night's game at the Braves.

Smith, a left-hander, was ejected for having rosin and sunscreen on his right forearm in the seventh inning of Thursday night's 10-1 loss to the Braves. He said after the game he put the substance on his forearm before warming up in the bullpen on a brisk night. He expressed regret for not wiping it off before entering the game.
