Olivo gets one-game suspension for Pittsburgh flap

Royals catcher Miguel Olivo has been suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount for inappropriate actions in Saturday’s game at Pittsburgh.

The penalty was for an argument in which Olivo made contact with plate umpire Phil Cuzzi after being called out on a checked swing. Olivo was ejected from the game.

Unless appealed, the suspension would be served in Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

The announcement was made by Bob Watson, vice president of on-field operations for Major League Baseball.
