MLB Hands Down Penalties for That Angels-Mariners Brawl – 12 Different Individuals Suspended! Including an Interpreter!

Chicago Cubs

If you missed it yesterday, there was a massive, legit basebrawl between the Angels and Mariners, which featured actual punches, multiple re-engagements, coaches and staff getting involved, and a whole lot of messiness. (Frankly, the enjoyable kind if they aren’t your teams!)

Here was the bulk of the rumble, if you missed it:

But with great fisticuffs comes great consequences.

Today, MLB handed down punishments, and it’s just an enormous list of suspensions. Even an INTERPRETER got suspended!

From the MLB announcement:

Michael Hill, Major League Baseball’s Senior Vice President for On-Field Operations, made the announcement. The discipline is as follows:

Angels manager Phil Nevin has received a 10-game suspension for the intentional throwing by pitcher Andrew Wantz while warnings were in place.

Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker has received a seven-game suspension for actions that caused the incident and for fighting.

Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon has received a five-game suspension for his actions during the incident and for leaving the dugout while on the Injured List. His suspension will be served when he returns from the Injured List. In addition to the suspension, Rendon is prohibited from sitting on the bench for the Angels’ next seven games.

Angels assistant pitching coach Dom Chiti has received a five-game suspension for his actions during the incident.

Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford has received a five-game suspension for fighting.

Angels pitcher Andrew Wantz has received a three-game suspension for his intentional throwing at Jesse Winker of the Mariners while warnings were in place. Wantz is not appealing and will begin serving his suspension tonight.

Angels pitcher Ryan Tepera has received a three-game suspension for his actions.

Angels pitcher Raisel Iglesias has received a two-game suspension for his actions.

Mariners outfielder Julio Rodríguez has received a two-game suspension for his actions.

Angels bench coach Ray Montgomery has received a two-game suspension for his actions.

Angels Major League Interpreter Manny Del Campo has received a two-game suspension for his actions.

Angels catching coach Bill Haselman has received a one-game suspension for his actions.

That’s a lot of consequencing! Some of those suspensions are massive, and some are also pretty funny. Anthony Rendon, whose season is over due to surgery, got himself suspended five games next year, and he also can’t sit with his friends for a week. And an interpreter got hit with a suspension! When was the last time an interpreter got suspended?!

The Mariners are at least having fun with the incident. Get a load of this story and this promotion:
