Suspensions handed down to Arenado, Parra in Coors Field brawl

Suspensions handed down to Arenado, Parra in Coors Field brawl

Earlier on Friday, Major League Baseball handed out discipline for Wednesday's melee between the Rockies and Padres at Coors Field.

For the Rockies, third baseman Nolan Arenado, who was almost hit by Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo, will be suspended for 5 games for charging the mound and fighting. Perdomo, Arenado, Parra and Baumann all received undisclosed fines in addition to their suspensions.

Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo also received a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch at Arenado and then fighting. "I was just defending myself". Meanwhile, San Diego Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo was suspended four games for his role in the incident. Ellis and shortstop Freddy Galvis.

"When you go out there, you're not going out there to fight, that's not why we are playing this game". All of the players can appeal their punishments and specifically with Parra and Arenado, they will probably be able to get a game or two knocked off of the suspension. The Padres, meanwhile, will need to select a replacement for Perdomo against the Dodgers; while they have yet to announce a starter, possible options include right-hander Jordan Lyles and southpaw Robbie Erlin. Baumann was optioned to Triple-A El Paso, and will serve that suspension upon his return to the Major Leagues. That's not why we're playing this game. Tony Wolters hit a bases-loaded, two-run single that center fielder Franchy Cordero misplayed to allow another run to score.

Arenado and Parra are in the lineup for Friday's game against the Washington Nationals, and are expected to appeal.

He'll nearly assuredly appeal said suspension.
