Julio Urías to be reinstated from administrative leave

2 Comments

Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías is expected to be reinstated from administrative leave on Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. Urías was arrested on May 13 on suspicion of domestic battery and placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball the next day.

We saw last year that Major League Baseball continually extended the administrative leave for Cubs shortstop Addison Russell and Astros reliever Roberto Osuna as it investigated each player’s own domestic violence accusation. That Urías will be reinstated after just one week suggests MLB has already wrapped up its investigation.

It remains to be seen if Urías will receive a punishment. The league at large as well as the Dodgers specifically not necessarily need an official charge to levy a fine and/or suspension.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
