Urías arrested and charged with domestic violence

September 4th, 2023

Dodgers left-hander  was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence on Sunday night.

"We are aware of an incident involving Julio Urías," the Dodgers said in a statement released on Monday. "While we attempt to learn all the facts, he will not be traveling with the team. The organization has no further comment at this time."

According to Jeff Passan of ESPN.com, Urías was released from a Los Angeles jail Monday morning on $50,000 bond and has a court date set for Sept. 27. A spokesperson for MLB said the league is aware of the arrest and will be investigating.

This marks the second time that Urías has been arrested on domestic violence charges. In 2019, Urías was arrested after getting into an argument with his wife in a parking lot. His wife later said that she fell on her own.

Despite not being charged, Urías, 27, was still suspended 20 games without pay by Major League Baseball that season for violating the league’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. No player has been suspended twice under that policy since it was instituted by MLB in 2015.
