Dodgers’ Julio Urias accepts 20-game domestic violence suspension

Julio Urias

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be without Julio Urias for roughly two more weeks owing to a domestic violence suspension.

Major League Baseball announced Saturday that Urias had accepted a 20-game ban for a domestic violence incident. The league gave him credit for five games already served when he was placed on administrative leave immediately after the arrest, meaning he has 15 more to go.

The suspension stems from an arrest in May in which Urias was accused of shoving a woman. While the charges were ultimately dropped, that did not preclude MLB from pursuing its own punishment, which they have. He’s on schedule to return to action in early September.
