MLB suspends four players following Wednesday’s Padres-Rockies brawl

San Diego Padres pitchers Luis Perdomo and Buddy Baumann have both been suspended for their roles in Wednesday’s bench-clearing incident between the Padres and Rockies at Coors Field. Perdomo, whose pitch sailed behind Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and sparked the melee, was suspended five games, while Baumann was suspended one game.

Arenado also received a five-game suspension while Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra has received a four-game suspension.

Three other players were fined for their roles in the incident including Padres catcher AJ Ellis, infielder Freddy Galvis and Rockies pitcher German Marquez.

Unless appealed, suspensions for Perdomo, Arenado and Parra begin tonight, while Baumann’s, who was optioned to Triple-A El Paso by the Padres, will be ffective upon his return to the Major Leagues.

The Padres host the San Francisco Giants Friday night in the second game of a four-game series at Petco Park.
