Torre, Kershaw, coach disciplined

BY foxsports • July 21, 2010

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, manager Joe Torre and bench coach Bob Schaefer have been suspended as a result of incidents in the team's loss to the San Francisco Giants.

Bob Watson, vice president in charge of discipline, rules and on-field operations for MLB, announced the discipline Wednesday.

Kershaw was handed a five-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing at Giants center fielder Aaron Rowand in the seventh inning of Tuesday night's game, which the Dodgers lost 7-5.

Kershaw has appealed, so he'll be allowed to play until the process is complete.

Torre received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for Kershaw's actions after plate umpire Adrian Johnson issued a warning to both benches in the fifth.

Torre was set to serve his suspension Wednesday night in the series finale.

Schaefer also got a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his actions, which included coming onto the field in the sixth. He will serve his suspension Thursday night, when the Dodgers open a four-game series against the New York Mets.

All three were ejected during the game.
