Cincinnati Reds outfielder Tommy Pham and San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson were involved in a brief altercation before Friday’s series opener at Great American Ball Park.
While the Giants were warming up in the outfield, Pham confronted Pederson in the outfield. As it turns out, Pham slapped him across the face over a disagreement stemming from their fantasy football league.
Pham agreed not to play in the game pending the results of the investigation.
Kapler confirmed to reporters that it was Pederson and Pham involved.
“We’re investigating it and learning as much as we can about the incident,” Kapler said. “We don’t have much more than that for you right now. I sense that we’ll have a clear understanding after the game.”
Pederson and Pham are both in their first seasons with their new clubs.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
