CINCINNATI (AP) — 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.
As the Giants warmed up in the outfield, Pham faced Pederson in the outfield in pregame warmups. The pair were quickly separated and no punches were thrown.
The incident was seen by reporters and happened before fans entered the stadium.
“We are investigating it and learning as much as we can about the incident,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. “We take this very seriously. Until we have a clear understanding of what happened, we don’t want to discuss it.
