Angels’ Ramirez suspended for drilling Marisnick

Major League Baseball has suspended Los Angeles Angels reliever Noe Ramirez for three games and fined him an undisclosed amount for throwing a pitch Tuesday near the head of Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick.

Angels manager Brad Ausmus was hit with a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine Wednesday stemming from the sixth-inning incident, in which Ramirez drilled Marisnick between the shoulder blades with a 1-1 pitch.

Whatever, man.

MLB roundup: Pujols hits 2 HRs, ties Winfield in hits

Albert Pujols hit two home runs, and the visiting Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-2 on Saturday.

It was the 59th career multi-homer game for Pujols, who homered in the first and fourth innings, and his first since July 12, 2018, against Seattle. He was 3-for-5 with three RBIs and three runs.

The two homers and a single gave Pujols 3,110 career hits, tying him with Dave Winfield for 22nd place on the all-time list.

Luke Bard (1-1) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for the Angels, who have won 10 of 14. Dylan Bundy (1-5) took the loss, giving up three runs on four hits over five innings.

Next up: A-Rod.

Albert Pujols Reaches 2,000 RBIs With Third-Inning Homer in Angels’ 13-0 Rout of Tigers

DETROIT — Albert Pujols turned on a fastball over the middle of the plate, sent the no-doubt shot deep into the left-field seats, flipped his bat toward celebrating teammates in the dugout and trotted around the bases.

By the time he stepped on home plate, the three-time MVP was in an elite group of three players in baseball history.

Pujols became the third player with 2,000 career RBIs when he hit a solo homer in the third inning Thursday to help the Los Angeles Angels rout the Detroit Tigers 13-0.

Mind you, we’ve discussed before that he isn’t….

MLB roundup: Pujols moves up RBI list in Angels win

Albert Pujols continued to move up the career RBI list, passing Lou Gehrig for fourth place all-time in the Los Angeles Angels’ 5-1 victory over the Royals Friday in Kansas City.

Pujols stands one behind Barry Bonds for third place with 1,995 RBIs. Only two players (Hank Aaron, 2,297; and Alex Rodriguez, 2,086) have driven in at least 2,000 runs.

Tyler Skaggs (2-2) continued his mastery of the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. Skaggs allowed three hits and no runs in five innings (plus one batter). He now has allowed one earned run in 26 innings (0.35 ERA) in four appearances. He has the best ERA all-time against the Royals at Kauffman (min. 20 innings).

Danny Duffy (0-1), who came off the 10-day injured list for his first start of the season, allowed three runs on five hits in five innings. He struggled in the first inning, giving up two runs and three hits. Pujols took a 2-1 pitch from Duffy and drove it into the fountains in left center, 430 feet away. With the home run, his fourth of the year, he moved past Lou Gehrig into fourth place all-time in RBIs.

For those who want a reminder as for why RBIs are considered of dubious statistical value….

Albert Pujols passes Ichiro Suzuki on all-time hits list

Angels DH Albert Pujols entered Sunday afternoon’s game against the Rangers tied with Ichiro Suzuki in 23rd place on Major League Baseball’s all-time hits list at 3,089. Pujols broke the tie to secure 23rd place all to himself with a third-inning single to right field.

There are eleven players who have fewer than 200 hits more than Pujols- how many of them will he catch?

Albert Pujols predicts he’ll be everyday player at age 39

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Albert Pujols has a bold if unrealistic prediction for his 2019 season.

“I’m expecting to play 162 games,” the Los Angeles Angels first baseman said Sunday. “One hundred ninety games I’m going to play this year, including spring training.”

A month past his 39th birthday, Pujols is an 18-year big league veteran, 10-time All-Star and three-time MVP.

I haven’t the heart to tell him- do you?
