Astros reliever Bryan Abreu faced a two-game suspension in the AL Championship Series for throwing at Adolis García 

Abreu's status for Game 7 was uncertain, pending a hearing before special assistant John McHale Jr 

If Abreu's suspension was upheld, it would leave the Astros short one player due to roster restrictions 

Astros manager Dusty Baker considered using Abreu in Game 6, but the suspension's status was unclear 

Abreu was eligible to pitch in Game 6 due to an ongoing appeal 

He struck out García but gave up an RBI double to Mitch Garver, extending Texas' lead 

García later hit a grand slam, further impacting the game's outcome 

MLB suspended Abreu, citing the dangerous nature of the pitch and its potential impact on player safety 

The incident led to a bench-clearing scuffle, resulting in ejections for Abreu, García, and Baker 

Despite the suspension, Abreu is a key reliever for the Astros with a 2.45 ERA in the postseason
