Chris Hatcher, an All-star reliever for the New Orleans Zephyrs, was suspended five games after a bar fight. The real shocker is who he was fighting...teammate Sam Dyson. Hatcher did serious damage, breaking Dyson's jaw in the process.

Dyson had surgery on his broken jaw and is expected to miss 6 weeks. Neither player will talk about why the fight started or what was said between the two since, but Hatcher said "there is a lot up in the air."
Hatcher will rejoin the team this Wednesday against Iowa and the rest of the Zephyrs bullpen will surely be wearing catchers masks while Hatcher is in the pen.
