Ramirez said he will appeal the suspension. Bench coach Josh Paul will manage the manage the Angels on Wednesday while Ausmus serves his suspension.

Marisnick was playing his first game against Los Angeles since his violent home plate collision with catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Marisnick ran over Lucroy while trying to score in Houston nine days ago, leaving Lucroy with a concussion and a broken nose. He's out for at least three more weeks. Marisnick is currently appealing his two-game suspension for the collision.
