Miguel Olivo suspended for ear-biting incident

Infielder Alex Liddi joins the Isotopes roster in a corresponding move.

SALT LAKE CITY -- The fallout from Tuesday's eighth-inning brawl begins on Wednesday for the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes, as catcher Miguel Olivo was placed on the suspended list.

The length of the suspension for Olivo is not yet known, though the Dodgers said in a statement that he will "remain suspended pending the completion of an investigation into the dugout altercation during yesterday’s game at Salt Lake."

It might not be the only punishment awaiting Olivo for biting the ear of Alex Guerrero in the dugout on Tuesday. Guerrero declined to press criminal charges against Olivo with the Salt Lake City police department on Tuesday, per Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times, but still has four years to file charges if he so chooses.

The Isotopes made a corresponding move, adding infielder Alex Liddi to the roster. Liddi was signed by the Dodgers on May 16 and spent the last few days at extended spring training at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. Liddi, 25, hit .176/.203/.303 with three home runs in 22 games with Triple-A Charlotte before getting released by the White Sox on May 13.

Guerrero hasn't yet been placed on the disabled list by the Isotopes, but could miss considerable time after undergoing surgery on his ear. Carlos Triunfel starts at shortstop for Albuquerque on Wednesday, with Walter Ibarra at second base and Miguel Rojas at third base.
