Is a 10 game suspension really punishment for a MLB pitcher?

    New York Yankees starter Miguel Pineda was suspended for 10 games Thursday by Major League Baseball for using pine-tar while pitching Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox.--but, Pineda, 2-2, 1.83 ERA, likely will miss just one start since the Yankees have an off-day in the next 10 days.

    Leaving aside whether pine tar should be used or not, if he only misses one start, is it really punishment? I believe he loses 10 days pay as well, but wouldn't a real punishment be losing 5 starts, or some other number?

    Why don't they have a microwave or a steam spigot on the mound to warm the ball
