Dodgers P Julio Urías arrested on domestic violence charges:

Julio Urías, the starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, was detained on felony domestic abuse charges late on Sunday, according to Los Angeles police. This is the second domestic violence arrest for the soon-to-be-free agency pitcher in the previous four years.

According to jail records, Urías, 27, was arrested shortly after 11 p.m. PT and was booked into custody at 1 a.m. He has a court date on September 27 and was freed at 4:47 a.m. on a $50,000 bail.

The Dodgers announced on X, the replacement for Twitter, that they are aware of an incident involving Julio Urías and that he is not with the club as it embarks on a six-game road trip that starts in Miami on Tuesday.

Urías was detained in 2019 on grounds of possible domestic violence. Despite ultimately not being charged, he was given a 20-game suspension for domestic violence by Major League Baseball. Since the policy’s implementation in 2015, no MLB player has experienced a double suspension for breaking it.

According to a source, Major League Baseball is looking into the situation. As Urías was prior to his 2019 punishment, the league normally places players accused of domestic abuse on administrative leave during an investigation. The court date for Urías is set for the last week of the regular season.

Over the previous three seasons, Urías had established himself as one of baseball’s top starters, reaching his pinnacle with the National League’s best 2.16 ERA and third-place Cy Young finish in 2016. He has struggled this year, earning a 4.60 ERA and giving up a career-high 24 home runs in 11713 innings as he approaches free agency.
