Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy has been suspended for 10 games and Diamondbacks infielder Eric Hinske for five for their roles in a brawl this week, while managers Don Mattingly and Kirk Gibson have been given one-game bans.

In all, eight members of the Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations were suspended Friday by Major League Baseball Senior Vice President Joe Garagiola Jr.

He cited Kennedy for intentionally throwing a pitch at the head of Zack Greinke after a warning had been issued on Tuesday night and Hinske for leaving the dugout and "aggressive actions." Mattingly was penalized for his conduct and Gibson for Kennedy's actions following a warning.

Dodgers pitcher J.P. Howell and infielder-outfielder Skip Schumaker were suspended two games apiece for "aggressive actions" and Los Angeles hitting coach Mark McGwire two games for his conduct.

Los Angeles pitcher Ronald Belisario was suspended one game for "aggressive actions."

All eight were fined, as were four additional players: Greinke and Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers, and Miguel Montero and Gerardo Parra of the Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers also received a fine as a team for allowing players on the disabled list to leave the dugout during the fight. Both the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks won't be allowed to have disabled list players in their dugouts over the weekend.

The Dodgers declined to comment on the suspensions when reached by KPCC.

Major League Baseball tweeted about the suspensions, which was retweeted by the Dodgers.
