Dodgers’ Joe Kelly Suspended For Eight Games
Bench clearing brawls just aren’t the same during a pandemic.
Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly has earned himself a little rest for the next week or so, after it was clear he was throwing at the Astros on Tuesday Night. The Dodgers are understandably probably still upset about that stolen 2017 World Series, so it wasn’t completely unexpected that they’d bean a player or two during matchups this season.
