Mets reliever Yoan López was suspended for three games and manager Buck Showalter for one after MLB ruled that Lopez intentionally threw at Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber during Sunday night’s game.
Both were fined an undisclosed amount.
Showalter served his suspension on Monday, as bench coach Glenn Sherlock served as the Mets’ interim manager.
The Mets are pissed that they have been hit by pitches this season. Francisco Lindor was hit by a pitch on Sunday, meaning the Mets have been hit a league-leading 20 times through Sunday’s game. López threw a pitch that was up and in against Nolan Arenado on Wednesday that led to a bench-clearing skirmish between the Mets and St. Louis Cardinals.
