Arenado, Perdomo get five-game suspensions

Nolan Arenado Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

And in reality, Arenado is lucky to get off with just a five-game suspension.

According to the announcement from MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre, Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo received a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch at Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and then fighting.

Pedromo flung his glove at the rushing Arenado and missed. That's because San Diego starter Luis Perdomo would throw at him, prompting a bench-clearing brawl.

The scrum began in the bottom of the third inning when Padres starting pitcher Luis Perdomo threw a 96-mph pitch that almost hit Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado in the back.

Arenado swung wildly at Perdomo after he reached the mound, but none of his punches landed squarely.

The tension between these two NL West teams started boiling a night earlier at Coors Field when Padres outfielder Manuel Margot got hit in the ribs by a pitch, putting him on the disabled list. "I'll either keep hitting in batting practice or maybe go to Arizona and get some bats down there in extended (spring)". The Padres right-hander eyed the three-time All-Star and immediately threw a pitch behind his back. Perdomo, Arenado, Parra and Baumann all received undisclosed fines in addition to their suspensions.

Arenado finished his day 0-for-1 with a strikeout. The big play was Tony Wolters' bases-loaded, two-run single that center fielder Franchy Cordero misplayed to allow another run to score.

Donaldson, the AL's MVP in 2015, is batting.239 with three home runs and nine RBIs in 12 games.
