Chicago White Sox outfielder Jermaine Dye's two-game suspension, announced last month, was upheld by Major League Baseball on Friday.

That means Dye will begin serving his suspension Friday as the White Sox host the Cleveland Indians.

On May 13 in Cleveland, Dye was ejected by plate umpire Mike DiMuro after being called out on strikes with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. Dye argued briefly with DiMuro and was ejected after slamming down his helmet, which bounced off the umpire.
