Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías, 27, was arrested on Sunday night for alleged domestic violence and booked early Monday, as confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department. Urías posted a $50,000 bail and was released, with a court hearing slated for September 27. Details surrounding the arrest remain unclear.
The Dodgers, acknowledging the incident, stated that Urías will not be accompanying the team as they seek to understand the complete facts. His participation in the upcoming game on Thursday remains uncertain. MLB has yet to comment on potential suspension considerations.
Urías was reportedly arrested near the LA Memorial Coliseum and BMO Stadium, coinciding with the LAFC’s game against Lionel Messi Inter Miami, an event he purportedly attended.
This incident marks Urías’ second arrest connected to domestic violence allegations; he was previously arrested in 2019 but faced no charges, instead undergoing a 52-week domestic violence counseling program sanctioned by MLB, which also suspended him for 20 games.
Prosecutors are set to decide on filing formal charges in light of this recent arrest. Urías, a native of Culiacán, Mexico, joined the Dodgers in 2012 and debuted in the Major League in 2016. It remains unclear if he has procured legal representation.
