Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías was arrested on domestic violence charges for the second time during his MLB career.

Per ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the 27-year-old was booked and released on a $50,000 bond early Monday morning. Urías has a court date scheduled for Sept. 27.

On Monday afternoon, the Dodgers said in a statement that Urías won’t go to Florida with the team for a series against the Miami Marlins starting Tuesday. 

“We are aware of an incident regarding Julio Urías,” the Dodgers said. “While we attempt to learn all the facts, he will not be traveling with the team. The organization has no further comment at this time.

According to The Athletic, Urías faces a felony charge for “corporal injury on a spouse.”

Urías was suspended 20 games in 2019 after getting arrested (but not charged) on suspicion of domestic battery. Passan noted that he’d become the first person suspended twice for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy since its introduction in 2015.

The left-hander won 20 games in 2021 and posted a National League-low 2.16 ERA last year, but he hasn’t pitched up to his standards this season. Urías has a 4.60 ERA with a career-high 24 home runs allowed.

Despite his struggles, the Dodgers have run away with the NL West at 84-52. They may now enter the postseason next month without Urías, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
