Only the Mets.
Francisco Rodriguez was held overnight in a detainment center in Citi Field after being charged with third-degree assault following an altercation with in father-in-law after Wednesday night’s loss to Colorado.
He will be arraigned Thursday morning at Queens Criminal Court.
This isn’t the first time Rodriguez’s temper got the best of him. Earlier this season he and bullpen coach Randy Niemann were involved in a shoving match, and last year he got in a shouting match with Tony Bernazard.
Rodriguez has always been an emotional type, the Mets knew this going in. It’s what fuels him on the mound, but gets him in trouble off it.
It’s questionable Rodriguez will be available this afternoon.
