Dodgers release ex-Mariner Olivo after brawl

NEW YORK — Miguel Olivo has been released by the Los Angeles Dodgers after his fight in the dugout with Triple-A Albuquerque teammate Alex Guerrero.
The team announced the move Thursday in a two-sentence statement that made no reference to the brawl during a game Tuesday at Salt Lake.
Olivo was placed on the suspended list the next day by the Albuquerque Isotopes. The veteran catcher’s release reduces the Dodgers’ roster to 39 players.
The Dodgers had said Guerrero is recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left ear and will remain in a Salt Lake City hospital for a couple of days.
Olivo, a former Seattle Mariner, has displayed a hot temper on the field before, charging at Jose Reyes and missing with a wild punch during a dustup between the Marlins and Mets in the 2007 season. The 35-year-old catcher appeared in eight games for the Dodgers this month, his 13th season in the majors. He was paid $110,000 in the minors and $800,000 while with the big-league club.
