The Yomiuri Giants will fine outfielder Tuffy Rhodes 2 million yen for criticizing the team after a 7-5 loss to the Yakult Swallows the previous day, the Central League club said Wednesday.

The move came after Rhodes criticized the team and fielding coach Sumio Hirota with insulting words in front of a group of reporters after the game at Yahoo Dome in Fukuoka.
