Shocked LAD Euryas arrested on second domestic violence charge
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Julio Urias (27) was arrested urgently on charges of domestic violence. It’s already the second time since 2019.
Major U.S. media, including The Athletic and Fox Sports, said on the 5th (Korea Standard Time), “Los Angeles police arrested Urias on charges of a serious crime (injury) against his spouse at 11:09 p.m. on the 4th.”
The venue is near BMO Stadium, where Lionel Messi’s Major League Soccer (MLS) match between Inter Miami and LA Galaxy was held, and Yurias was reportedly imprisoned at 1:05 a.m. on the 5th and released around 4:47 a.m. on bail of $50,000. The first hearing is reportedly on the 28th of this month.
His team, the LA Dodgers, and the Major League Baseball (ML) secretariat immediately began to understand the situation. “We are aware of an incident involving Urias,” the Los Angeles Dodgers said in a statement. While checking all the facts, he will not be accompanied by the team, and there is nothing more to comment on at this time.” According to The Athletic, the Major League Baseball Secretariat is expected to launch an investigation, and Urias agent Scott Boras remained silent.
Naturally, Urias’ appearance against the Miami Marlins on the 8th was also canceled. This year, Urias was one of the pillars of the LA Dodgers’ starting rotation with 11 wins, 8 losses and a 4.60 ERA in 21 games. As the FA is set to play after this season, a large contract worth more than $200 million (about 264.2 billion won) is also expected.
Earlier in the season, The Athletic said, “Assuming that Julius stays healthy, he could become the 245th pitcher to sign a contract worth more than $200 million. Euryas from Mexico gives a special appeal to three Southern California teams (near Mexico). “As many baseball officials predicted, if the LA Dodgers recruit Ohtani, it will be much more attractive to the LA Angels and San Diego Padres.”
Urias, who has been noted as the best prospect in the Major League beyond the LA Dodgers since childhood, seemed to be full of potential by ranking first in the National League with 20 wins, 3 losses, and a 2.96 ERA in 2021 and 17 wins, 7 losses, and 2.16 ERA in 2022. This year, the season just before the FA, the performance slows down, but it was considered an attractive sale because it is still so young at the age of 27.
Recently, Fox Sports said, “Euryas can still win a long and profitable contract. That’s what happens when you become an FA at 27. The ostensible figure is only the league average, but statistically the expected performance is much more encouraging. “Euryas certainly didn’t raise his stock price this year, but some teams will pay a lot of money to recruit him because he has shown a lot of things before.”
However, the jackpot, which can aim for up to $200 million, is on the verge of being thwarted by a mistake that he made himself. The results are not yet out, but Euryas is already a precedent. In May 2019, Yurias was arrested by police for using physical violence while arguing with a woman in a parking lot of a shopping mall. Although he was not punished legally, he was suspended from 20 games by the Major League Baseball Secretariat under domestic violence rules 토토놀이터
If it is punished under the same provisions, it will be the first case in the Major League. According to the U.S. media ESPN, no player has violated domestic violence more than twice since the Major League Baseball Secretariat introduced rules related to domestic violence in 2015.
