Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias arrested on suspicion of domestic battery

Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias was arrested outside a Los Angeles mall Monday night on suspicion of domestic battery, a Los Angeles Police spokesperson confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. 

Police responded to a report of an argument in a parking for the Beverly Center around 7:30 p.m. Urias, 22, was arrested and transported to downtown Los Angeles by police. He was booked for a misdemeanor and bond was set at $20,0000, according to the LAPD. 

Urias' arrest comes on the heels of Addison Russell's return to the Chicago Cubs last week after he completed a 40-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s Domestic Abuse policy when his ex-wife detailed alleged abuse with MLB officials.

The former prospect was moved out of the starting rotation and into the bullpen in mid-April and registered his second save in five days on Monday.

TMZ was the first outlet to report the arrest.
