Los Angels Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias has been placed on a seven-day administrative leave by Major League Baseball after being arrested in Los Angeles on Monday night on suspicion of domestic battery.
Urias was arrested after a report of an argument in a shopping mall parking and transported by police, according to the LAPD. He was booked on a misdemeanor.
The leave was effective Tuesday and can last up to seven days.
“We learned about the alleged incident this morning and are in the process of gathering information," the Dodgers said in a written statement on Tuesday. "As a result, we have no comment at this time regarding the incident. However, every allegation of domestic violence must be taken seriously and addressed promptly, and we will cooperate fully with the authorities and Major League Baseball to ensure that that happens in this case.”
