Marcell Ozuna receives retroactive suspension

Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. announced Monday that Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna has retroactively received an unpaid suspension of 20 regular-season games for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. The unpaid suspension of Ozuna includes all 20 regular season games served while he was on Administrative Leave between his Sept. 10 placement and the conclusion of the 2021 season.

Commissioner Manfred said: “My office has completed its investigation into the allegations that Marcell Ozuna violated Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. Having reviewed the totality of the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Ozuna violated our Policy and that discipline is appropriate.”

So the initial story that was sold apparently was far from the truth. I was expecting at least 81 based on the story, maybe 162, but Manfred's investigation could apparently only justify... twenty.

I’m not sure it was that far from the truth. I think missing most of a season is their view of just punishment. I assume this means Bauer will get the “time served” sentence as well.

So, does Ozuna have to write a check to the Braves for this?

I assume this means Bauer will get the “time served” sentence as well.


I did notice recently that Bauer has come out of hiding and is posting on Twitter and showing up in new YouTube videos.

Maybe Bauer has word that a decision is close at hand.
