MLB Reduces Diamondbacks' Eric Hinske's Suspension To One Game

Jun 25 2013, 7:25pm CDT | by

Major League Baseball reduced Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Eric Hinske's suspension from five games to one for his role in the brawl between his team and the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 13.

Major League Baseball reduced Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Eric Hinske's suspension from five games to one for his role in the brawl between his team and the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 13. 

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal said Hinske will serve his suspension Tuesday night for the opener of a three-game series against the Washington Nationals. Rosenthal the Diamondbacks slugger was not ejected during the brawl, even added he appeared to be a victim by getting struck with an overhand right from the Dodgers' Yasiel Puig. 

The June 14 news release from MLB said Hinske was suspended for "leaving the dugout and his aggressive actions during the incidents." Hinske said he would appeal.

He sent Rosenthal a text message

"Unreal. I can't believe it."

Dodgers left-hander J.P. Howell told the Los Angeles Times that Hinske's suspension surprised him, saying, "He was actually being cool." Rosenthal cites a source in his article who said Hinske hit Puig first. 

USA Today Sports' Nick Piecoro said Hinske's agents told him MLB officials reviewed new footage of the brawl that showed he threw no punches. 

"He said they had new video and are admitting they made a mistake and they wanted to bring it down to one game.

"But bringing it down to four games is pretty drastic. And the union wanted me to take it. I agreed it was the right thing to do and I'm going to serve it today."

Piecoro also refers to Puig's actions during the game. He writes one replay of the fight "clearely showed Hinske on the receiving end of a punch by Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig, who was not suspended." 

Hinske feels Puig should have been suspended

"I definitely feel that Puig should have been suspended, 100 percent. He was the most out of control player in that whole thing. Why he didn't get suspended, I have no idea."

The Associated Press says eight members of the Diamondbacks and Dodgers organizations were suspended, including Diamondbacks right-hander Ian Kennedy, who is serving his 10-game suspension. 

For the 2013 regular season, Hinske has played in 51 games. He has had nine hits on a .173 average, one home run and six RBIs, per ESPN stats
