Los Angeles Dodgers star Julio Urías has been arrested again on domestic violence charges.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that the Los Angeles Police Department arrested the pitcher Sunday and he received felony domestic violence charges.

Urías posted $50,000 bail Monday for his release.

This is the second time the 27-year-old Urías has faced domestic violence charges during his career. After a 2019 domestic battery incident, the left-hander was placed on administrative leave and later suspended 20 games under MLB’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

Prosecutors decided not to press charges in that previous incident, after Urías agreed to several conditions, including attending a 52-week domestic violence counseling program.

An MLB suspension seems a given at this point, and it’s likely to be much longer than his previous suspension.

Urías finished third in the NL Cy Young Award voting last season after going 17-7 and leading the league in ERA (2.16). He’s struggled this year, with a 4.60 ERA in 21 starts, but has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks. He missed more than six weeks with a hamstring injury before the All-Star break. Urías will become a free agent after the season.

Fans quickly reacted to the news.
