Major League Baseball has announced that Travis Snider and Russell Martin have been suspended for their role in the fight during Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Snider received a two game suspension, while Martin received a one game suspension.
On the Milwaukee side, Carlos Gomez received a three game suspension, and Martin Maldonado received a five game suspension.
I can understand the suspension for Snider, since he was involved in the brawl. What I don’t understand is the suspension for Martin, who wasn’t actively involved in the incident.
All four players also received fines from MLB.
Snider and Martin are currently in tonight’s lineup, although that could change if they don’t appeal their suspensions.
