Angels' Anthony Rendon suspended four games by MLB for interaction with fan

Updated Apr. 3, 2023 8:35 p.m. ET

Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon was suspended for four games and fined by Major League Baseball on Monday for his interactions with a fan last week.

If Rendon appeals the decision by MLB senior vice president Michael Hill, he would remain eligible to play until the appeal is decided by special assistant John McHale Jr. Rendon had appealed the suspension, which was initially five games, and got it reduced to four per multiple reports.

Rendon grabbed a fan by the shirt through the bleacher guardrails after Thursday night’s 2-1 loss at Oakland. Rendon looks to have grabbed the fan’s shirt near his chest through the bars of the railing and exchanged words with him before appearing to take a swipe at the bill of the man’s ballcap and walking into the tunnel.

A video showed the fan, dressed in A’s colors, approach the railing as Rendon turned toward him from the tunnel walkway below. Rendon then appears to grab the man’s shirt and ask him what he just said, accusing the fan of calling him a derogatory term before swiping at his ballcap.
