Kansas City Royals catcher Miguel Olivo suspended one game - ESPN
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Royals catcher Miguel Olivo has been suspended for one game for his animated argument with an umpire in Pittsburgh last Saturday.
Olivo chose to serve the suspension on Wednesday, which left the Royals without an experienced backup catcher for their game against the Minnesota Twins.
John Buck, the other catcher, is rehabbing a back injury.
Olivo was also fined an undisclosed amount for what was termed inappropriate actions against umpire Phil Cuzzi.
