NEW YORK -- Boston Red Sox reliever Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for his inappropriate actions during Saturday's game against Oakland at Fenway Park.

Papelbon made contact with home plate umpire Tony Randazzo after he was ejected in the top of the ninth inning.

The right-hander was scheduled to begin serving his suspension on Tuesday, but he has elected to appeal.
