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 hands Jake Marisnick two-game suspension for home plate collision with Jonathan Lucroy

Major League Baseball announced on Thursday that Jake Marisnick of the Houston Astros will be suspended two games for colliding with Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer of Major League Baseball, was responsible for ruling on the collision, and explained his reasoning in the statement MLB released about the suspension.

“After thoroughly reviewing the play from all angles, I have concluded that Jake’s actions warrant discipline. While I do not believe that Jake intended to injure Jonathan, the contact he initiated in his attempt to score violated Official Baseball Rule 6.01(i), which is designed to protect catchers from precisely this type of collision.”

‘(Expletive) play!’ Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina rips play that injured Jonathan Lucroy | USAT

Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy was sent to the hospital Sunday as the result of a collision in a play at the plate with the Houston Astros’ Jake Marisnick.

Lucroy got a CT scan and was being evaluated for a possible concussion as well as broken nose, the Angels said. Despite the violent nature of the incident, the play reignited debate online regarding MLB’s play-at-the-plate rules (Marisnick was called out for the collision).

Longtime St. Louis Cardinals star Yadier Molina was one of the many voices who weighed in on the play, and he was not happy to see a fellow catcher get leveled in such brutal fashion. He let his anger for Marisnick and the situation at-large known in a profanity-laced post on his verified Instagram account.
