Unsurprisingly, the Dodgers have released catcher Miguel Olivo from their Triple-A affiliate, the team announced. He literally bit off a teammate's ear during a fight earlier this week.

As reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, Olivo punched and then bit teammate Alex Guerrero. A piece of Guerrero's ear fell to the dugout floor and had to be surgically reattached. He is expected to miss a month or so.

Olivo was reportedly angry with Guerrero because he did not get a tag down in time during a stolen base attempt. Guerrero, who signed a four-year contract worth $28 million over the winter, was playing shortstop. Here's video of them getting into it during a pitching change.

A police report was filed -- the Dodgers are performing their own investigation -- and Olivo was immediately suspended. Now he's been released. It was only a matter of time, really.
