Angels reliever Noé Ramirez and manager Brad Ausmus have received undisclosed fines and respective suspensions of three games and one game as a result of Ramirez’s actions on Tuesday night against the Astros in Anaheim. Ramirez threw a fastball that hit Jake Marisnick in the shoulder.
The pitch was seemingly retaliation because Marisnick barrelled into catcher Jonathan Lucroy on a play at home plate on July 7. Lucroy was hospitalized and was diagnosed with a fractured nose and a concussion. Ausmus called for Marisnick to be suspended and he was, for two games.
