As the saying goes, "don't let the door hit you in the rear end."
Following up on the incident from a couple of days ago, that resulted in immediate surgery for Alexander Guerrero, the team has officially cut ties to catcher Miguel Olivo. Per a Dodger press release that is short and direct:
Today, the Los Angeles Dodgers released catcher Miguel Olivo from their roster.As you likely know, a scuffle broke out on Tuesday in an Albuquerque Isotopes game between teammates Miguel Olivo and Alexander Guerrero. Words were said, fist were thrown and a catchers mouth made contact with an infielders ear.
The Dodgers now have 39 players on their 40-man roster.
Olivo went "full-Tyson" and now he is out of a job.
Check out my post on the incident here.
These tweets made me laugh:
Alex Guerrero's gonna be happy to hear Olivo got released. Happy to hear. Hear. This joke is about his ear.

@4lisaguerrero tasteless joke in 3,2,1: Olivo defended his actions saying "do you know how hard it is to find Cuban food in Salt Lake City?"

What an idiot. #miguelolivo's probably getting an earful of criticism from the press! I bet his coach even chewed him out!
