Combined, the Yankees are 15-2 against the Twins in the playoffs since 2002.

Report: Marcell Ozuna injured, his wife arrested in domestic violence incident

Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 South Florida reports that Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna recently suffered a facial injury after his wife allegedly hit him with a soap dish. The incident apparently happened a few weeks ago.

Slater says that Ozuna reported the incident to Miami police and that Ozuna’s wife, Genesis, was arrested and charged with domestic battery. She subsequently pleaded not guilty and was given a stay-away order. Presumably more legal proceedings are in the offing.

The injury itself doesn’t sound serious, but the matter certainly is.
