• A source told ESPN that punishment or suspensions stemming from Tuesday's brawl between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks would not be announced until Thursday. Six men, including Arizona manager Kirk Gibson and Dodgers star rookie Yasiel Puig, were ejected after the prolonged bench-clearing scuffle.

• A judge refused for a second time to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Major League Baseball against a South Florida clinic and its operators over allegations they provided banned substances to players. Circuit Judge Ronald Dresnick on Wednesday denied the dismissal motion filed by the attorney for Carlos Acevedo, who managed a clinic called Biokem. That clinic was the predecessor to now-closed Biogenesis of America, which along with former operator Anthony Bosch is the main target of the MLB lawsuit. The lawsuit contends the clinic and Bosch solicited players to purchase or use banned performance enhancing substances in violation of their contracts with MLB.

• ESPN reported that the Dodgers and Diamondbacks will open the 2014 regular season with two games in Australia. The games will be played March 22-23 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

• The Padres recalled outfielder Jaff Decker from Triple-A Tucson and placed center fielder Cameron Maybin (knee)on the 15-day disabled list.

• The Nationals recalled former Pirates right-hander Ross Ohlendorf from Triple-A Syracuse, and he started Wednesday night at Colorado.
