In a 2014 photo, Miguel Olivo of the Los Angeles Dodgers poses for a photo in Glendale, Ariz. Olivo has been suspended by the Dodgers’ top farm team following his fight in the dugout with Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes teammate Alex Guerrero. In a statement released Wednesday night, the Dodgers say Olivo was placed on the suspended list by the Albuquerque Isotopes. The veteran catcher is on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster, and the club says he “will remain suspended pending the completion of an investigation” into the brawl during Tuesday’s game at Salt Lake.
