Venezuela Winter League suspends Torrealba for 66 games

Via Jason Cole, the Venezuela Winter League has suspended Yorvit Torrealba for 66 games -- in other words, the rest of this season and all next season -- for hitting an umpire on Friday.

Torrealba, under contract with the Rangers for the 2012 season, is expected to split time at catcher with Mike Napoli this coming year.

The organization has said that they are gathering information about this incident, but there's no indication at this point that Torrealba will be suspended or otherwise punished for this incident by the Rangers or MLB.
