Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson will miss the team's next two games due to a suspension.

The discipline is the result of a July 29 incident when Anderson made contact with an umpire during an argument. MLB initially suspended Anderson for three games, but the 29-year-old appealed and got it reduced to two games.

Anderson will sit out Sunday's series finale against Texas and the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader in Kansas City.
