The Marlins have suspended Olsen 2 games for what’s officially being called “insubordination and conduct detrimental to the team”. What actually happened is that he got into a fight with Sergio Mitre after he was pulled from yesterday’s game. Maybe he was upset that Mitre knows how to get ground ball outs and not walk batters.
Olsen will not miss his next start on Wednesday and only loses about $4,000 in salary. This is probably a good thing because Olsen is a bit of a head case mentality and maybe he will feel like he has something to prove.
He is lucky that we traded away Randy Messenger.
