NEW YORK (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers' rookie Yasiel Puig has been fined, but will not be suspended for his role in a benches-clearing brawl earlier this week against Arizona.
In all, eight members of the Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations were suspended Friday by Major League Baseball Senior Vice President Joe Garagiola Jr. Puig was one of four more players to receive an undisclosed fine.
Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy has been suspended for 10 games and infielder Eric Hinske for five for their roles in a brawl this week, while managers Don Mattingly and Kirk Gibson have been given one-game bans.
Garagiola Jr. cited Kennedy for intentionally throwing a pitch at the head of Zack Greinke after a warning had been issued on Tuesday night and Hinske for leaving the dugout and "aggressive actions." Mattingly was penalized for his conduct and Gibson for Kennedy's actions following a warning.
Dodgers pitcher J.P. Howell and infielder-outfielder Skip Schumaker were suspended two games apiece for "aggressive actions" and Los Angeles hitting coach Mark McGwire two games for his conduct.
Los Angeles pitcher Ronald Belisario was suspended one game for "aggressive actions."
