Suspensions handed down to Arenado, Parra in Coors Field brawl


Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado received a five-game suspension for charging the mound and then fighting during a game against the Padres earlier this week at Coors Field.

Colorado outfielder Gerardo Parra was suspended four games for fighting, and San Diego pitcher Buddy Bauman got a one-game suspension for fighting.

Kelly has received a six-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally hitting Austin with a pitch and fighting.

Padres catcher A.J. Ellis and infielder Freddy Galvis and Rockies right-hander German Marquez were fined but not suspended.

According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, Arenado will appeal his suspension. If things stand, the Rockies take the short end of this, as they'd be losing an MVP candidate in Arenado for five games. All of the players can appeal their punishments and specifically with Parra and Arenado, they will probably be able to get a game or two knocked off of the suspension. In fact, two others are receiving suspensions for their roles as well.

The Rockies have already been discussing when Arenado and Parra would begin their suspensions. That's not why we're playing this game.

For now, all Nolan Arenado can do is play baseball and await his fate.

"We will see how long this is going to be, but I'm going to find a way to figure it out", he said.

That set the stage for Arenado, who didn't take kindly to a pitch that almost grazed his back. It's five days, it's a pretty long time time. Margot's hit-by-pitch injured his ribs and landed the center fielder on the disabled list.

"He's looks better, he's gaining on it, for sure", Black said.
