NEW YORK (AP) - Miguel Olivo has been suspended by the Los Angeles Dodgers' top farm team following his fight in the dugout with Triple-A Albuquerque 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.

The Dodgers say 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.
