The LA Dodgers are taking steps to part ways with Julio Urias (27), who committed domestic violence for the second time.
According to ESPN on the 12th (Korean time), Urias’ locker was removed from the clubhouse of Dodger Stadium, the home stadium of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The space that was originally Urias’ locker was decided to be used by veteran second baseman Colton Wong.안전놀이터
The mural of Urias at Dodger Stadium was also covered up, and all Urias-related products were withdrawn from stores within the stadium.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the disappearance of Urias’ locker was “an organizational decision” and “it’s a sad thing about the whole thing.”
When asked whether the actions taken by the team meant parting ways with Urias, he replied, “I think so. I think now is the time.”
He added, “I don’t have much to say, other than the fact that this is a very unfortunate and sad situation.”
It was reported that Urias, a key player for the Dodgers, was arrested on charges of domestic violence on the 5th and released after paying $50,000 bail (approximately 65 million won).
This was not the first time Urias had experienced domestic violence, so the shock was even greater. He also has a history of being arrested in 2019 after an argument with his wife in a parking lot.
This time, he was arrested after a witness reported him getting into a physical altercation with a woman after a soccer game between Miami and LA FC.
Four years ago, he was suspended for 20 games by the Major League Baseball office for violating the common rules for domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Punishment is inevitable this time as well.
ESPN said, “Urias could become the first player to be disciplined twice since domestic violence regulations were implemented in the Major League in 2015,” and added, “It seems unlikely that he will be overthrown before the end of this season.” I pointed out.
Previously, the secretariat, along with the players’ union, announced that Urias would be placed on administrative leave until further notice.
It is expected that the Dodgers and Urias’ partnership will end like this.
Urias has played exclusively for the Dodgers since making his first appearance in the major leagues in 2016.
He appeared in 158 career games and left with a record of 60 wins, 25 losses, 8 holds, 4 saves, and an ERA of 3.11. He went 11-8 this year with an ERA of 4.60.
A red light has also come on to find a new team for Urias, who is scheduled to become a free agent after this season.
