Francisco Rodriguez suspended by Mets; Johnny Cueto suspended; Chipper Jones hurts ACL

New York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez has been suspended by the team for two days after he was arrested and charged with assaulting his father-in-law Wednesday night outside the team's Citi Field clubhouse.

The Mets say that K-Rod "will be removed from the roster, will not be with the team, and will not be paid during that time."

Brawl suspensions/fines handed down

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto has been suspended seven games for what Major League Baseball determined to be "violent and aggressive actions" in the brawl Tuesday between the Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals. No word yet on whether Cueto will appeal.

Managers Tony La Russa of the Cardinals and Dusty Baker of the Reds were given two-game suspensions, which begin Friday.

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips and pitcher Russ Springer and Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina and pitcher Chris Carpenter were fined undisclosed amounts, as were Cueto, La Russa and Baker.

The agent for Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones says he has a "badly stretched" ACL and may require season-ending surgery. Jones, 38, has hinted that he may retire after this season.
