Nolan Arenado one of four players suspended for Wednesday's Padres-Rockies brawl

Arenado was suspended five games by Major League Baseball after charging the mound and throwing punches.

"Nolan Arenado (5 games), Luis Perdomo (5 games), Gerardo Parra (4 games) and Buddy Baumann (1 game) suspended and fined for benches-clearing incident in Wednesday's Rockies-Padres game". Perdomo threw his glove at Arenado and evaded him at first. In all, five players were ejected from the game. He'll most likely appeal the decision and, under Major League Baseball rules, is allowed to play until his suspension is heard. The suspended players were also fined.

Padres players A.J. Ellis and Freddy Galvis received undisclosed fines, as did Rockies pitcher German Marquez.

Arenado swung wildly at Perdomo after he reached the mound, but none of his punches landed squarely. It's hard not to react in a certain way when you know somebody is trying to do something on objective.

Just yesterday we reported rumors of Thompson cheating on the reality star, which may have induced the labor. Thompson, 27, and Kardashian have been dating since being set up on a blind date in September 2016.

Asked if the suspension would affect how he might deal with a similar situation in the future, Arenado said: "Well, I mean, he's throwing 96 (mph) at me on objective, you know?" "Obviously, five games - you don't want to fight".

"We'll talk about all of that after tonight's game and go from there", Arenado said. But 96 at you, on goal? He was placed on the disabled list with bruised ribs.

In all likelihood, even if the suspension remains at five games, they could start him the day after his suspension ends and just give him an extra day of rest.

Unless appealed, the suspensions of Perdomo, Arenado and Parra are scheduled to be effective Friday night, when the Padres are to host San Francisco and the Rockies are to visit Washington.
