NEW YORK (AP) – Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver has been suspended six games for throwing a pitch near the head of Detroit’s Alex Avila on Sunday, and his manager Mike Scioscia has been suspended for one game.

Weaver was ejected in the bottom of the seventh inning of a testy 3-2 loss to the Tigers on Sunday. He threw a pitch just over Avila’s head after Detroit’s Carlos Guillen showboated on a home run.

Weaver has also been fined an undisclosed amount.

Joe Garagiola Jr., Major League Baseball’s senior vice president of standards and on-field operations, announced the discipline.

Weaver has decided to appeal.

The Angels are home Tuesday night, hosting the Minnesota Twins.
