The Dodgers’ young star pitcher is expected to be reinstated today, after a seven-day administrative leave following his arrest on suspicion of domestic battery.
Witnesses say Urias shoved his girlfriend in the Beverly Center parking lot on May 13. The Los Angeles Times reports that authorities have seen the surveillance footage, but the league hasn’t been able to access video of the incident.
The decision was made by the commissioner’s office in coordination with the MLB players’ union. The commissioner’s office could have suspended Urias, postponed his discipline to a later date or asked for another seven-day leave.
Both the MLB and the LAPD investigations into Urias are ongoing.
