San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin will appeal the eight-game suspension he received after inciting a brawl during which Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone.
After Greinke hit Quentin on the arm with a 3-2 pitch in the sixth inning of a one-run game, the 30-year-old bull-rushed the mound at Petco Park. Greinke threw his glove off, stood his ground and got trucked, swallowed by a pile of Dodgers and Padres who cleared the benches.
Greinke will have surgery and is expected to be sidelined for around two months.

Eight games, meanwhile, is among the stiffer penalties MLB has assessed for a player charging the mound – equal to what Nyjer Morgan received in Sept. 2010.
Major League Baseball, which announced the suspension and appeal Friday night, wanted to ensure Quentin missed the Padres’ series with the Dodgers that begins Monday – and a source expects the appeal to be settled before then. Considering the way Thursday night’s melee ended – with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and Quentin nose-to-nose in the stadium bowels, needing to be separated by teammates and security – the suspension would allow the teams to cool off before their next series June 3-5.
