Chris Davis had to be restrained during a clash in the dugout with manager Brandon Hyde during Wednesday night's game between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees.
Hyde lifted Davis for pinch hitter Jace Peterson in the fifth inning. Shortly afterward, the MASN broadcast showed a clip of Davis getting into a heated exchange with Hyde, which resulted in him having to be restrained.
"It was just a disagreement that we had in the dugout," Hyde said. "What was said and what we talked about, I'm not going to get into. We're going to keep it in house, and it's private. It's something that happens sometimes and frustration boils over a little bit when we're not playing our best baseball the last couple of games. Unfortunately, I'm embarrassed it was caught on camera and people had to see it, but sometimes those things happen."
Hyde said he took the veteran first baseman out of the game.
"We had words and I took him out of the game," the manager said. "Me and Chris have a good relationship and these things happen in competitive environments and it's something that'll pass and we'll get through it, but it's unfortunate that it happened in the dugout."
