According to a report by Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and the Major League Baseball Network, agent Scott Boras said part of Guerrero’s ear was "displaced" after he was bitten by Olivo. Police are investigating.

In the eighth inning of the Bees’ 7-4 victory, play was stopped briefly when the fight broke out in the Isotopes’ dugout.

Guerrero and Olivo had confronted each other an inning earlier during an Albuquerque pitching change. Standing near the mound, Olivo charged Guerrero before teammates stepped between them.

The Dodgers issued a statement saying the organization was investigating the incident.

The Bees and Isotopes play again Wednesday night.
