MLB suspends Padres’ Carlos Quentin eight games, Dodgers’ Jerry Hairston Jr. one; both appeal.

Carlos Quentin has been suspended eight games, and Jerry Hairston Jr. one, for their roles in Thursday’s benches-clearing brawl in San Diego.

Both players have appealed their suspensions and will continue to play until the league issues its decision on the appeal. That means that Hairston and Quentin could be in the lineup Monday, when the Dodgers host the Padres at Dodger Stadium.

Quentin and Hairston were both fined an undisclosed amount.

Matt Kemp and Zack Greinke avoided supplemental discipline for their roles in the melee. Both were ejected, along with Hairston and Quentin, who began the brawl by charging Greinke after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning. (Video here).
