MLB reinstates Julio Urias, Dodgers add him to active roster

TAMPA — Major League Baseball official reinstated Julio Urias from administrative leave Tuesday and the Dodgers added him to their active roster.
However, MLB acknowledged “the investigation into a matter governed by the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy continues.” It is still possible Urias could be suspended or disciplined by MLB when that investigation concludes.
Urias was placed on seven-day administrative leave a week ago after he was arrested and briefly jailed on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic battery. He posted $20,000 bail and was released early last Tuesday morning.
Police were called to the Beverly Center parking garage a week ago Monday after an incident involving Urias and a woman believed to be his girlfriend.

Players placed on administrative leave by MLB are paid but do not count against their team’s roster. The leave is technically for “up to seven days” but can be extended if the investigation is still ongoing but only with the approval of the players’ union. According to an ESPN report, the players’ union was unlikely to agree to an extension in this case and Urias could have filed a grievance.
