’20-Win Pitcher’ Clears Locker Room, LAD ‘Domestic Violence’ Urias Traces

Correspondent Lee Sang-hee] Left-hander Julio Urias (27) disappeared from the locker room (club house) of the LA Dodgers in the Major League. The Dodgers have begun to “clear traces” of Urias, who was involved in domestic violence.

The LA Times reported on the 12th (Korea Standard Time), “The Dodgers removed the position and name tag of Urias in the home team clubhouse,” adding, “Instead, veteran infielder Colton Wong (33), who was recently called up to the big leagues after moving to the Dodgers through a minor league contract.” The media reported that Urias’ murals inside Dodger Stadium and his uniform sold at souvenir shops have also disappeared.스포츠토토

Yurias, who will become a free agent (FA) at the end of this season, has been released on bail after being arrested on charges of domestic violence on the 5th. He is scheduled to appear in court on the 27th local time.

After the incident, the Dodgers said on its official channel, “We are aware of the incident related to Urias, and we are grasping all the factors. He said, “I will not accompany him on the team’s expedition.”

The Major League Baseball secretariat has also reportedly launched an investigation into Urias’ case. During the period of investigation, you will be given a paid leave of absence.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts (51) said in an interview with local media, “Excluding Urias’ position in the clubhouse means that his position in the roster is the same, and that is our current situation.”

He continued, “As I mentioned when the incident was first known, there is not much I can say about it at the moment. However, this is an unfortunate and very sad event,” he added.

This is not the first time that Urias has been arrested on charges of violence. In May 2019, he was arrested by police for physical violence while arguing with a woman in a shopping mall parking lot.

Yurias, a Mexican native and once called the Dodgers’ top pitcher prospect, has played 158 games in eight seasons in the big leagues with a record of 60-25 losses and a 3.11 ERA. He won the Major League Baseball’s overall victory with 20 wins (3 losses) in the 2021 season and ranked first in the National League’s ERA (2.16) in 2022.

This year, he threw 117⅓ innings in 21 games before his arrest, recording 11 wins, 8 losses, and a 4.60 ERA. However, due to this violent incident, it seems impossible to take the mound for the rest of the season and is expected to be disadvantaged by FA contracts.
