Dodgers suspend Olivo after minor-league incident

Miguel Olivo was suspended by the Los Angeles Dodgers’ top farm team Wednesday after his fight in the dugout with Class AAA Albuquerque teammate Alex Guerrero.

In a statement released Wednesday night, the Dodgers said Olivo, the former Mariner, was placed on the suspended list by the Albuquerque Isotopes. The veteran catcher is on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster, and the club said he “will remain suspended pending the completion of an investigation” into the brawl during Tuesday’s game at Salt Lake.

The Dodgers confirmed Guerrero is recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left ear and will remain in a Salt Lake City hospital for a couple of days. It’s unclear how long he will be sidelined.

Several media outlets reported that Guerrero’s agent, Scott Boras, said Olivo bit off part of Guerrero’s ear. Guerrero, an infielder from Cuba, signed a $28 million, four-year deal with the Dodgers in October. He was beaten out for the starting second-base job by Dee Gordon in spring training.

Notes

• A boy who was struck in the head by a foul ball at Turner Field was visited in the hospital by players from both the Braves and Brewers. The boy, who has not been identified but was said to be 8 years old, was sitting behind Atlanta’s first-base dugout Tuesday night when he was hit by Carlos Gomez’s liner in the seventh inning.

Prince Fielder stayed home when the Texas Rangers left for Detroit and a series against his old team. Fielder, who has missed four games because of a herniated disk in his neck, is scheduled to be examined in Dallas on Thursday by specialist Dr. Drew Dossett.

Chris Sale will come off the disabled list Thursday and start for the White Sox against the Yankees. Sale went on the DL on April 22 with a flexor strain in his left arm.
