MLB is “reviewing” Matt Adams shoving a Reds fan

47 Comments

During yesterday’s Cardinals-Reds game St. Louis first baseman Matt Adams went into the crowd while pursuing a foul ball. He missed the catch and then frustratedly shoved a Reds fan in the chest with his glove.

It wasn’t exactly a huge incident, although the Reds fan in question apparently had just undergone knee surgery (he also gave Adams the middle finger). However, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch “the commissioner’s office is reviewing video and information about what happened.”

Here’s video of the whole thing, so you can do the same:

It’s hard to imagine Adams being disciplined for that, but who knows.

Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke continued to swing a good stick, belting his third homer of the season on Monday night against the Dodgers. With the game tied 3-3 in the second inning, Greinke lined a 1-1 Clayton Kershaw fastball over the fence in left field for a solo homer.

Greinke is the third pitcher to homer off of Kershaw, joining Madison Bumgarner and Tyson Ross. He’s No. 4 if you count Brandon Woodruff‘s home run in Game 1 of the NLCS last year. Greinke now has three homers on the season, setting a career-high. He’s batting .314/.351/.686 with six RBI, seven runs scored, and a stolen base along with the trio of dingers. Absurd numbers from a pitcher.
