Players from the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies have been disciplined by Major League Baseball for their roles in a bench-clearing brawl that took place in the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game at Coors Field in Denver.
According to the announcement from MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre, Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo received a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch at Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and then fighting. In turn, Arenado received a five-game suspension for charging the mound and fighting.
Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra received a four-game suspension for fighting during the incident, while Padres pitcher Buddy Baumann received a one-game suspension for fighting.
Perdomo, Arenado, Parra and Baumann all received undisclosed fines in addition to their suspensions.
Other players who were fined for their actions were catcher A.J. Ellis and infielder Freddy Galvis of the Padres and pitcher German Márquez of the Rockies.
The suspension of Baumann, who has since been optioned to Triple-A El Paso, will be effective upon his return to the Major Leagues, pending appeal.
