Report: Reds OF Tommy Pham slapped Giants’ Joc Pederson over fantasy football disagreement

For a while, it was hard to figure out what exactly what happened before Friday’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants.

We knew a confrontation in the outfield escalated to the point two people had to be separated. We knew it didn’t reach any kind of brawl status, even though the Reds bullpen cleared. We knew Reds outfielder Tommy Pham was scratched from the lineup with no explanation right before a rain delay ended. And that was about it….

According to The Athletic, Pham slapped Giants outfielder Joc Pederson over a disagreement with their fantasy football league. Specifically, Pham reportedly slapped Pederson “Will Smith-style,” and we take that to mean the actor and not the Los Angeles Dodgers catcher or Atlanta Braves reliever, both of whom have been teammates with Pederson.

Pham told reporters Pederson was the instigator, according to The Mercury News. The two were apparently reheating an argument they had in a group text in a league involving players from several other teams.

Report: Giants agree to deal with former Dodgers OF Pederson

The Giants found their lineup boost on Wednesday, reportedly agreeing to a deal with Palo Alto native Joc Pederson, the powerful lefty bat they’ve been seeking. The agreement, first reported by MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, is a one-year deal worth $6 million, according to reporter Jon Heyman.

Pederson, 29, is a former Palo Alto High star who previously played for Farhan Zaidi in Los Angeles. In seven seasons with the Dodgers, Pederson reached 25 homers four times. The left-handed hitter spent last season with the Cubs and Braves, posting a .732 OPS and hitting 18 homers while winning a World Series title.

Pederson fits the Giants’ platoon preferences well. He is one of the game’s most dangerous hitters against right-handed pitching, with a .341 on-base percentage and .490 slugging percentage. The Giants had been looking for one more left-handed bat after the universal DH opened up another lineup spot.
