Dodgers’ Julio Urias suspended 20 games for violating domestic violence policy

The Score

Major League Baseball has suspended Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias for 20 games for violating the league's joint domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse policy, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

Urias was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence after police responded to a call about a man and woman arguing in the parking lot at the Beverly Center shopping mall in May. Urias was cited for a misdemeanor.

The league promptly placed Urias on administrative leave while it investigated, a move that needs to be renewed every seven days. But the league allowed his leave to lapse after five games and Urias was able to rejoin the Dodgers' active roster.
