Giants P hurt hamstring during fight with Dodgers

Dodgers Giants brawl

Dereck Rodriguez wound up as collateral damage of Tuesday night’s fight against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The San Francisco Giants right-hander was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Thursday with a Grade 1 hamstring strain. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Rodriguez suffered the injury during the aforementioned benches-clearing brawl with the Dodgers.

Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley were the primary combatants in the incident, which occurred in the seventh inning of the eventual 2-1 Giants win. Puig got a fine and a two-game suspension as a result, while Hundley was also fined.

As for Rodriguez, who holds a 2.25 ERA in 12 starts this year and is the son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez, his injury is not quite unprecedented. Earlier this season, we saw another pitcher get hurt under very similar circumstances.
