Chris Davis had to be limited throughout a clash in the dugout with manager Brandon Hyde throughout Wednesday night’s video game in between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees.
Hyde raised Davis for pinch player Jace Peterson in the 5th inning. Quickly later, the MASN broadcast revealed a clip of Davis entering into a heated exchange with Hyde, which led to him having to be limited.
“It was just a disagreement that we had in the dugout,” Hyde stated. “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 stated he took the veteran very first baseman out of the video game.
“We had words and I took him out of the game,” the manager stated. “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.”
