Left-handed pitcher Julio Urias (27, LA Dodgers) was arrested on charges of domestic violence, causing shock.
According to ESPN, an American sports media outlet, on the 5th (Korean time), Urias was arrested on charges of domestic violence and sent to prison. He is currently released on bail of $50,000 (65 million won), and his court date has been set for the 28th. The Dodgers immediately released a statement saying, ‘We are aware of the incident involving Urias. He won’t be with us while we try to find out all the facts. The club said it had no further comment at this point.안전놀이터
This is the second time Urias has been arrested for domestic violence, following 2019. Four years ago, Urias was arrested after arguing with his wife in a parking lot. Although he was not charged at the time, he was suspended 20 games without pay by Major League Baseball (MLB) for violating the Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Code of Common Pleas.
ESPN reported, ‘No player has been suspended twice since MLB introduced the related policy in 2015.’ It has been reported that the MLB Secretariat is investigating the matter after confirming the news of Urias’ arrest.
Urias, who is from Mexico, has an MLB career record of 60 wins (8 years), 25 losses, and an average ERA of 3.11. He attracted attention in 2021 by earning his first 20 wins (3 losses). His performance this season was somewhat poor, with 21 starts, 11 wins, 8 losses, and an ERA of 4.60. To make matters worse, he was accused of domestic violence, putting a question mark over his ability to participate in future games.
