Belisario, Howell, Schumaker, Mattingly, & McGwire All Suspended

Finally, news on suspensions. Direct from MLB.com:

D-backs pitcher Ian Kennedy has received a 10-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Zack Greinke of the Dodgers in the bottom of the seventh inning, after a warning had already been issued to both Clubs earlier in the game;

D-backs infielder Eric Hinske has received a five-game suspension for leaving the dugout and for his aggressive actions during the incidents;

Pitcher J.P. Howell and infielder/outfielder Skip Schumaker of the Dodgers have each received two-game suspensions for their aggressive actions during the incidents;

Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire has received a two-game suspension for his conduct during the incidents;

Dodgers pitcher Ronald Belisario has received a one-game suspension for his aggressive actions during the incidents;

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has received a one-game suspension for the actions of his Club and for his conduct during the incident;

D-backs manager Kirk Gibson has received a one-game suspension for the intentional actions of Kennedy after a warning had been issued.

Greinke, & Yasiel Puig were fined, but not suspended.

All in all, not too bad, I think. No discipline for Clayton Kershaw, no missed start for Greinke, and Howell could have easily received more than two games for flipping Arizona coach Turner Ward over a railing. Kennedy gets the worst of it, as he should. Really, I can’t complain with any of this.

No word yet on appeals or when the Dodgers will serve their suspensions; they will almost certainly not happen all at the same time.
