Warning: Video contains coarse language

Los Angeles Angles third baseman Anthony Rendon grabbed the shirt of an Oakland Athletics fan in the stands during an argument after Thursday’s opener:

Video of the incident shows an upset Rendon accusing a fan of using derogatory language toward him. The 32-year-old also appeared to swat at the spectator’s head.


“We are aware of the video, and we are now looking into the matter,” an MLB spokesperson said in a statement Friday, according to Sam Blum of The Athletic.

Rendon is expected to address the media Saturday about the incident, per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.

The league suspended the former All-Star for five games last season for his involvement in a bench-clearing brawl with the Seattle Mariners in June while wearing a cast to protect his injured wrist.
