Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told reporters in the aftermath of last Friday’s benches-clearing brawl that Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin should be suspended for as long as it takes Zack Greinke to fully recover from his fractured left collarbone.
Greinke, though, says that would be “pretty crazy.”
This is from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:
Quentin was suspended eight games, a penalty Greinke said he believed was the maximum ever levied by Major League Baseball against a batter charging the mound.
“Right there, that says a lot,” Greinke said. “To expect the league to do more than that would be pretty crazy.”
Greinke would not say whether he had heard from Quentin since the incident. Greinke also would not comment on Quentin’s contention that the pitcher yelled an expletive at him before he charged the mound. “It just isn’t anyone else’s business,” Greinke said.
The $147 million man will be sidelined for at least six more weeks. Ted Lilly is taking his rotation spot.
