League commutes suspensions for Lachance, Lebron

The League commissioner has announced that the 10-game suspensions previously given to Brett Lachance (Ohio) and Miguel Lebron (New York) have been reduced to just 5-games, and they may rejoin their teams as of tomorrow.

The decision was made after an appeal by the Oxen manager. Also factoring in is the fact that both teams are in pennant races and the length of the original suspension would have had a detrimental impact to both clubs going into the final stretch of the regular season.

Lachance is hitting .349 this year since joining Ohio from Hamilton, with 7 homers and 24 RBIs. Lebron is 3-3 with a 5.40 ERA, 3 saves and 21 Ks in 21.2 innings in 2016.
