Yankees manager Aaron Boone has been suspended for Sunday's game and received an undisclosed fine after he made contact with the home plate umpire when he was ejected from Friday night's series opener against the Tigers.
Bench coach Josh Bard is expected to serve as manager for the game, according to Joe Trezza of MLB.com.
Boone was arguing balls and strikes when he was ejected, which led him to come out of the dugout and argue before squatting at the plate to point out his problem with the umpire's calls.
Before squatting, his cap touched the umpire's cap, leading the umpire to point out that he made contact with him.
Boone has led the Yankees to an 86-50 mark in his first season as manager.
