On Thursday, the Dodgers parted ways with veteran catcher Miquel Olivo, who had been suspended for his role in a Triple-A dugout fight with teammate Alex Guerrero on Tuesday.
The dustup, which occurred during the Albuquerque Isotopes vs. Salt Lake Bees' game, Olivo took a page from Mike Tyson's playbook when the catcher bit Guerrero's ear.
The Dodgers confirmed Guerrero is recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left ear in a statement released Wednesday night and will remain in a Salt Lake City, Utah, hospital for a few of days.

It's unclear how long Guerrero will be sidelined.
In his 13th season in the majors, Olivo, 35, appeared in eight games for the Dodgers this month.
Guerrero, an infielder from Cuba, signed a four-year, $28 million the Dodgers in October. He was beaten out for the starting second-base job by Dee Gordon in spring training.
