Schumaker was handed a two-game suspension by MLB for "aggressive actions" in the benches-clearing incident after Arizona's Ian Kennedy hit Zack Greinke with a pitch near his neck a week ago, but Schumaker said replays will show that he was playing peacemaker.

Schumaker's actions might have been misinterpreted because, as the on-deck hitter, he was already on the field and appeared on the scene faster than the other Dodgers.
