Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor domestic battery.
He was arrested Monday at about 7:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Beverly Center shopping mall, Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said Tuesday. No details were released.
The Dodgers said in a statement that they learned about what happened Tuesday morning and had no immediate comment while they are gathering information.
“Every allegation of domestic violence must be taken seriously and addressed promptly,” the team said. “And we will cooperate fully with the authorities and Major League Baseball to ensure that that happens in this case.”
MLB also issued a statement saying officials were aware of the incident and were gathering information.
There was no comment on Urias’ status for Tuesday night’s game against the San Diego Padres.
There also was no immediate response early Tuesday to an email sent to Urias’ agent, Scott Boras.
The left-hander pitched three innings of scoreless relief for his second career save Friday night in the Dodgers’ 5-0 victory over the Washington Nationals. He is 2-2 this season with two saves and a 3.18 ERA.
