While Torre said in a statement that he does "not believe that Jake meant to injure Jonathan", he also said "the contact [Jake] initiated in his attempt to score violated Official Baseball Rule 6.01 (i), which is created to protect catchers from precisely this type of collision". Major League Baseball said the suspension would begin Thursday if he didn't appeal.
"I've seen a lot of takes on it, and obviously everybody has their own opinion", Marisnick said before the AL West-leading Astros played their first game after the break.
MLB Rule 6.01 (i) concerning home plate collisions states, "A runner attempting to score may not deviate from his direct pathway to the plate in order to initiate contact with the catcher...or otherwise initiate an unavoidable collision". Marisnick tagged up from third base and right fielder Kole Calhoun's throw home was bobbled by Lucroy just in front of home plate before Marisnick collided full speed with Lucroy.
Lucroy appeared to be knocked unconscious momentarily after the contact and Marisnick immediately went over to him to check on him knowing the violence of their collision.
