Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at an Atlantic City hotel and casino, police say. Herrera, 27, was taken into custody without incident at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino around 8:30 p.m. He has now been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball.

Atlantic City police officers responded Monday night to the Golden Nugget for a domestic violence incident report.

L.A. Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias arrested for domestic violence

L.A. Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias—a rising star in the organization—was arrested for domestic violence Monday night ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The 22-year-old was arrested at 9:30 PM in Los Angeles after an incident at the Beverly Center, an upscale shopping area.

We’re told a witness called cops claiming Urias was in the parking lot arguing with a female companion and shoved her to the ground.

Cops responded and spoke with the woman, who denied anything physical took place ... and insisted it was nothing more than a heated verbal argument. 

However, sources connected to the situation tell us ... witnesses were adamant they saw Urias push the woman and video from the scene appeared to back up the witness accounts.

Report: Cubs privately threatening writers who criticize Addison Russell

Sheryl Ring of FanGraphs, who is also a lawyer, has spoken to a member of the media who said that the Cubs privately instructed that person to lay off Russell, threatening reprisal. The Cubs are approving stories that paint Russell in a positive light, particularly in terms of redemption. One that comes to mind is an article published last week by Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports. Nightengale minimizes Russell’s behavior and sets him up as a fallen hero. Others have said they have heard the same as Ring, including Mike Gianella of Baseball Prospectus.

Pretty reprehensible if true.
