Royals' Edinson Volquez drops appeal, starts 5-game ban

CLEVELAND (AP) Kansas City Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez has dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension for his involvement in a brawl with the Chicago White Sox last week.

Volquez was to start serving his suspension against Cleveland on Monday night.

"It was the right time to do it since I pitched yesterday," said Volquez, who went 5 2-3 innings and was the losing pitcher Sunday against Chicago.
