On Friday, Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ian Kennedy was adamant that Major League Baseball was making an example out of him, after he was assessed a 10-game suspension for his role in last Tuesday's brawl at Dodger Stadium.

"No," Kennedy said when asked if the ban was fair. "That's why I'm going through with the appealing process. Look at the history, my history and the history of first offenses of things that have happened in the past, that's why I'm going to go through the appealing process."

Well apparently after a few days of contemplation, the 28-year-old has had a change of heart according to the team's official Twitter account.

With Kennedy beginning his 10-game suspension Monday night, he'll be eligible to return June 29 against the Atlanta Braves.

His 10-game ban was the harshest levied to a pitcher since the Kansas City Royals' Runelvys Hernandez in 2005.
