Hector Olivera dealing with an “elevation issue” in Colorado Springs.

Hector OliveraARLINGTON, Texas — Hector Olivera was removed from a Triple-A game in Colorado Springs on Monday due to an elevation issue.

“I didn’t hear anything injury-wise,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “The reason he came out, what they told me was the elevation: He felt some sickness, headaches, dizziness.”

The 30-year-old infielder is not in the Oklahoma City Dodgers’ starting lineup today, but he is at the ballpark.

Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen was felled by similar symptoms when the Dodgers played in Colorado earlier this month.
