Anderson suspended two games for arguing balls and strikes
Anderson appealed the suspension and was available for Tuesday night's game against the Washington Nationals.
Anderson, also fined an undisclosed amount, was pinch-hitting in the bottom of the ninth inning of Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Shea Stadium. After arguing a called third strike by plate umpire Dan Iassogna, an incensed Anderson threw his batting helmet toward home after he reached the dugout.
"I'm going to plead my case -- let them hear my side," Anderson said. "The whole thing is ridiculous. It's a mockery [of] the game.
"I threw the helmet and I shouldn't have. I'll deal with the consequences of it."
