As expected, MLB has suspended Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin for his role in Thursday's benches-clearing brawl with the Dodgers. He received an eight-game ban according to CBSSports.com's Scott Miller.

Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke suffered a broken collarbone in the scrap. The injury will require surgery and keep Greinke on the shelf for eight weeks. Greinke hit Quentin with a pitch before the latter charged the mound. Greinke is not expected to be suspended, according to Miller.

Quentin, 30, is 4 for 18 (.222) with three doubles through eight games this season. He could appeal the suspension and continue to play in the meantime. CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman argued that Quentin deserved a 15-game suspension.

Greinke is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two starts this season. Los Angeles signed him to a six-year contract worth $147 million this offseason.

Jerry Hairston Jr. was suspended one game, reports Miller. He charged the Padres' dugout after the initial brawl. Matt Kemp has not yet been disciplined, but MLB is still looking at him and it could result in a suspension or fine.
