This Monday The Los Angeles Dodgers returned home and revealed that Mexican pitcher Julio Urías’ dressing room was noticeably emptyfollowing his arrest on September 4 on suspicion of felony domestic violence.
Urías’ locker was replaced by one of veteran second baseman Kolten Wong and at least two of his murals at Dodger Stadium had also been covered.
Dave Roberts, manager of the Dodgers, revealed that removing Urías’ locker was an “organizational decision” and described the situation as “sad on all levels”.
When asked if the actions taken by the team were an indication that Urías was being distanced from the team, Roberts said: “I think so. I think that’s where we are now.”.
“I really don’t have much to comment.”Roberts added, “apart from the fact that, as I said on the first day, this is a very, very unfortunate and sad situation”.
It should be noted that they also auctioned off items linked to Julio Urías such as caps, t-shirts, socks, among other commercial items, in the team’s official store. The purpose of this decision is to finish in an expedited manner everything that has to do with the “Culichi” in the team store.
Urías is on indefinite administrative leave after he was arrested on September 3 on suspicion of bodily injury to his spouse or cohabitant. The left-hander has been on the Dodgers’ pitching staff since 2016, and has led the entire MLB in ERA and wins.
Dodgers cancel Urías bobblehead promotion
The Julio Urías bobblehead promotion that the Los Angeles Dodgers had for the night of September 21 is replaced with a drawing of select premium bobbleheads for the first 30,000 fans who attend.
The Dodgers reported Wednesday that they canceled the Urías doll promotion that they had scheduled for September 21. That day, the first 30 thousand fans will receive dolls of different players.
A possible suspension or the opening of a judicial process would extend the Mexican’s departure from the Dodgers in the face of the Major League postseason.
The left-hander who this season has a record of 11-8, with an earned run percentage allowed of 4.60, in 21 startshis price could also be affected in the face of free agency, since he is in the last year of his contract with the Dodgers.
