Kennedy unsure what to expect following brawl

LOS ANGELES -- Ian Kennedy is from nearby Huntington Beach and was a Dodgers fan growing up.

The D-backs right-hander, though, is well aware that the Dodgers are no fans of his after he plunked Yasiel Puig and Zack Greinke with pitches Tuesday night.

"Out of all the teams I liked in California, it'd be more the Dodgers," Kennedy said. "I don't think many Dodgers fans like me too much."

Kennedy is well aware that he could be the target of a pitch in a future game against the Dodgers.

"If I get thrown at my head, so be it," Kennedy said. "We've got better helmets this year."

Kennedy is expected to be disciplined by Major League Baseball, but as of Wednesday night no penalties had been announced.

"I think we'll wait and see," Kennedy said about whether he thought he would receive a suspension. "I know there's a lot of video to be seen. There were a lot of punches thrown and I looked at it last night and there weren't a lot from us. Lot of [disabled list] guys over there that are going to get it."

Players on the disabled list are not allowed to be on the field, and it appeared several Dodgers who were on the DL were involved in the fracas.

"I leave that up to the Commissioner's Office," D-backs GM Kevin Towers said when asked if he thought Kennedy would be disciplined. "I'm sure we'll know something [Thursday]. There's going to be suspensions probably on both sides. We were a little outmanned when all their DL players were on the field. I saw at least six or seven guys who were on the disabled list in the middle of it."
