Angels manager Phil Nevin suspended for 10 games for his role in fight with Mariners

ANAHEIM — Angels manager Phil Nevin was suspended for 10 games, the most serious penalty among the 12 members of the Angels and Mariners who were suspended on Monday in the wake of Sunday’s fight.

Managers and coaches do not have the right to appeal suspensions, so Nevin’s suspension begins with Monday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

Right-hander Andrew Wantz, who threw a pitch behind Julio Rodríguez in the first inning and then hit Jesse Winker in the second after warnings had been issued, was suspended for three games. He did not appeal his suspension, so he will begin serving it on Monday.

Angels relievers Ryan Tepera (three games) and Raisel Iglesias (two games) were the only other active Angels players who were suspended. Both are appealing.

Third baseman Anthony Rendon, who is out for the season after undergoing wrist surgery, was suspended for five games, to be served after he’s off the injured list. Rendon was also barred from being in the Angels’ dugout for the next seven games. There is no word yet on whether Rendon is appealing his suspension. Even though it doesn’t start until next season, he could appeal to have it reduced.

When a player is suspended, his team can’t replace him on the active roster.

The other Angels’ suspensions were among the coaching staff. Assistant pitching coach Dom Chiti (five games), bench coach Ray Montgomery (two games), interpreter Manny Del Campo (two games) and catching coach Bill Haselman (one game) were all suspended. Chiti and Del Campo also began serving their suspensions on Monday, while Montgomery and Haselman will serve theirs after Chiti returns.
