The Mets handed out discipline on Monday for Mickey Callaway and Jason Vargas, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen announced.
The team fined Callaway and Vargas for their roles in a clubhouse incident following Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Callaway and Vargas each confronted Newsday reporter Tim Healey, with Vargas threatening to "knock out" Healey.
Van Wagenen called the incident "disappointing" and "regrettable on many levels," but he did not say if the team considered suspending either Callaway or Vargas.
While addressing reporters on Monday, Callaway called the incident a "misunderstanding" and said he can control his actions better. He did not explicitly apologize.
Vargas described the confrontation as "an unfortunate incident" as part of a short statement to reporters. He did not take any questions.
The team is currently in Philadelphia for a series with the Phillies.
