Major League Baseball suspended New York Mets pitcher Yohan Ramirez and his manager Carlos Mendoza on Sunday after an incident during a game with the Milwaukee Brewers star. Rhys Hoskins.

Ramirez threw behind Hoskins during Saturday’s game, adding another chapter to the feud between the slugger and the Mets.

The pitch came after Hoskins homered and singled, and it came off a hard slide he made against Mets second baseman Jeff McNeil on Friday.

Even Mets broadcaster Ron Darling criticized the speech, saying “the message was about two hours late.”

The incident with Ramirez and Hoskins was enough for MLB to lay down the law. The announcement came more than an hour before the series finale between New York and Milwaukee.

“Big players don’t miss eight feet,” Hoskins said. “Whether it was on purpose or not is not for me to decide. I really don’t care. But this game has had a way of controlling itself for many, many years. So let’s focus on making it happen .the right way if we want to do this.”

Brewers manager Pat Murphy didn’t think the pitch was intentional.

“There’s a story there, and we had an altercation the day before and an altercation goes over his head – although I bet it wasn’t on purpose,” Murphy said. “I didn’t suggest they take him out of the game. I just said, ‘Hey man, we’ve got to take care of this. I don’t want people to get hurt.'”

Ramirez joined dishes during the offseason after appearing in 31 games with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox in 2023. He is appealing the suspension, according to the New York Post.

Mendoza is in his first season as Mets manager after being named Buck Showalter’s replacement. He only managed two games and will now miss what would have been his third.
