MIAMI (AP) -The Florida Marlins suspended left-hander Scott Olsen for two games because of insubordination, manager Fredi Gonzalez said Monday.
Gonzalez said Olsen's penalty stemmed from an incident Sunday after Olsen was relieved, but would not elaborate.
Olsen won Sunday against the Washington Nationals, giving up two runs and six hits in five innings. Gonzalez said the decision was made ``collectively.''
Olsen began serving the suspension Monday, and will not miss his scheduled start Friday at home against the Cincinnati Reds. Olsen was not in the clubhouse Monday to comment on the suspension.
The Marlins starter is 7-7 with a 5.15 ERA this season. He was 12-10 with a 4.04 ERA in 2006.
