NEW YORK (AP) -Padres outfielder Milton Bradley was fined but not suspended for his confrontation last month with umpire Mike Winters.
Winters previously was suspended for inciting Bradley.
Bob Watson, baseball's vice president in charge of discipline, said Friday that Bradley was not suspended ``because no contact was made'' during the eighth-inning screaming match at San Diego on Sept. 24. The Padres lost to Colorado 7-3.
Bradley tried to get at Winters, but was spun to the ground by San Diego manager Bud Black. Bradley sustained a torn knee ligament and missed the rest of the season, including the Padres' 13-inning loss to the Rockies in the NL wild-card tiebreaker.
Bradley said he was provoked by Winters, and the commissioner's office suspended the umpire for the final five days of the regular season after concluding that Winters used a profanity aimed at Bradley.
On Sept. 27, Bradley had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his right knee.
