Los Angeles Dodgers RP J.P. Howell and INF/OF Skip Schumaker have been suspended for two games for their aggressive actions during the incidents of the game on Tuesday, June 11, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. RP Ronald Belisario has been suspended for one game for a similar reason. Manager Don Mattingly has been suspended for one game for the actions of his club and his conduct during the incidents. Hitting coach Mark McGwire has been suspended for two games for his conduct during the incidents. Mattingly is scheduled to serve his suspension on Friday, June 14. McGwire will serve his on Friday and Saturday, June 15.
Also, SP Zack Greinke and OF Yasiel Puig were fined undisclosed amounts. All player discipline is subject to appeal.
The organization has also been fined for allowing players who are on the disabled list to enter the field during the incidents. The Dodgers will not be allowed to have players who are on the DL to sit in their dugout for their games throughout this coming weekend. Those players may return to their benches on Monday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Phew. Thankfully, for fantasy owners, Greinke and Puig escaped without suspensions. The rest of this is inconsequential for fantasy purposes, essentially.
