Dodgers Pitcher Julio Urías Arrested for Alleged Domestic Violence
Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías has been arrested for alleged domestic violence, according to reports. The left-hander was taken into custody at 11:09 p.m. on Sunday and booked into the Los Angeles Police Department’s Jail Division. He has since been released after posting a $50,000 bail. A court date has been scheduled for September 27.
The circumstances surrounding Urías’ arrest remain unclear. However, the Dodgers organization is aware of the incident and has made the decision that Urías will not be traveling with the team until further notice. It is uncertain if the player has been suspended, as Major League Baseball (MLB) has not responded to requests for comment.
This is not Urías’ first brush with the law. In 2019, he was arrested for possible misdemeanor domestic battery and subsequently suspended for 20 games. Prosecutors will now determine if any formal charges should be filed following his recent arrest.
The arrest took place near Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and BMO Stadium during a soccer match. It is still unclear if Urías has legal representation at this time.
Urías, a highly talented pitcher from Culiacán, Mexico, signed with the Dodgers in 2012 and made his MLB debut in 2016. However, the uncertainty surrounding his recent arrest has cast doubt over his scheduled pitching appearance on Thursday.
As the situation develops, fans and the Dodgers organization will anxiously wait for further updates regarding Urías’ legal status and any potential disciplinary actions from MLB. The team’s decision to keep him off the traveling roster indicates a serious approach to the matter, reinforcing the importance of addressing domestic violence allegations in professional sports.
