Dodgers' Julio Urías Arrested on Felony Domestic Violence Charges

Dodgers' Julio Urías Arrested on Felony Domestic Violence Charges
According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Uras has been detained and is accused of felony domestic abuse.

Uras was detained on Sunday night and released on $50,000 bail on Monday. Beth Harris of the Associated Press reports that he is scheduled to appear in court on September 27.

No information about the alleged event has been released. In a statement, the Dodgers stated that Uras would not be traveling with the group as they "attempt to learn all the facts."

This is Uras's second arrest for a domestic violence-related offense.

He was detained in May 2019 after allegedly pushing a lady he was with at a Los Angeles shopping center on charges of domestic violence. According to Richard Winton of the Los Angeles Times, the woman eventually admitted to investigators that she had fallen in a parking lot after an argument. No charges were brought against her.

Uras was suspended for 20 games for breaching Major League Baseball's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse Policy even though no charges were brought against him.

Uras has played for the Dodgers for his entire eight-year major league career, helping them win the World Series in 2020 and the National League ERA Championship in 2022 with a 17-7 record, 2.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 166 strikeouts in 175 innings, and 31 starts.

With an 11-8 record, a 4.60 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and 117 strikeouts in 117.1 innings across 21 starts, the 27-year-old hasn't been quite as productive this year, but he's still been a useful part of the rotation.

The last time Uras pitched was against the Atlanta Braves on September 1.

At loanDepot Park on Tuesday, the Dodgers will resume play against the Miami Marlins.
