Quentin to be Suspended Eight Games
Hardballtalk.com is reporting that MLB has decided to suspend Carlos Quentin 8 games for his role in the benches clearing brawl against the Dodgers last night.
It should be interesting to see how this unfolds since Grienke instigated Quentin by yelling at him, prompting Quentin to charge the mound. Although MLB doesn’t like to be bothered with details, I would expect the USDHS standout to appeal the suspension.
In a pinch the Padres do have Guzman and Denorfia to play left and Kyle Blanks ready at AAA.
