Dodgers | Miguel Olivo released

Thu, 22 May 2014 11:09:22 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers released C Miguel Olivo Thursday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Taking a chunk out of a teammate's ear isn't exactly the way to endear yourself to a team. Olivo may find it tough to latch on with another organization at this stage of his career.

Dodgers | Alexander Guerrero could miss five weeks

Wed, 21 May 2014 10:17:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alexander Guerrero (ear) could miss five weeks after having plastic surgery on his ear after C Miguel Olivo bit off part of Guerrero's ear during an altercation at Triple-A Albuquerque Tuesday, May 20, according to sources. It's possible one or both players could be subject to further action by the team. Guerrero was hitting .376 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs and had received playing time at other positions than second base.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero's performance on the farm was putting him in line for a promotion soon. He'll have to wait now, and he'd likely be mainly a bench option for the Dodgers unless an injury to the infield occurred.

Dodgers | Tim Federowicz optioned, Miguel Olivo coming up

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 12:57:35 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, April 30, and recalled C Miguel Olivo from Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Federowicz just wasn't cutting it offensively, hitting near .100. Olivo could form some sort of platoon with Drew Butera behind the dish with A.J. Ellis still out. If neither are receiving regular PT, they aren't worth your time, even in two-catcher leagues.
