Manger Jerry Manuel has been suspended for one game by MLB. Sandy Alomar, Sr. will manage the team today against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The suspension is the result of bumping caps with umpire Bill Welke during an argument Thursday before Manuel was thrown out of the game. If you recall, Manuel argued and obstruction call against Jose Reyes when Shane Victorino forced contact with Reyes during a run down.
This doesn’t come as a surprise. As I wrote on Thursday, a suspension was the likely result of making contact with the umpire.
