Urías, who turned a free agent on the finish of the 2023 season and stays unsigned, was arrested Sept. 3 by Exposition Park police following a much-publicized soccer match between the Los Angeles Football Club and Inter Miami — that includes star Lionel Messi — at BMO Stadium.

“The Dodgers take all allegations of the type on this case very severely, and we don’t condone or excuse any acts of home violence,” the crew stated.

He was suspended for 20 video games in 2019 by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred for an incident within the car parking zone of the Beverly Center on May 13 of that yr.

TMZ reported {that a} witness referred to as police saying that Urías was arguing with a lady and shoved her to the bottom. Officers responded to the scene and spoke with the girl, who denied something bodily occurred, insisting it was nothing greater than a heated argument.

Urías was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor home battery in that incident, however no costs had been filed.
