Matt Klentak Updates Media on Odubel Herrera Situation

Odubel Herrera mug shot

Phillies GM Matt Klentak spoke a short time ago about the Odubel Herrera incident.

Herrera was arrested in Atlantic City last night on domestic violence charges and was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball. A police report says Herrera’s girlfriend had “visible signs of injury to her arms and neck.”

Klentak notes:

  • Gabe Kapler held a team meeting today to talk about the incident
  • Herrera did talk to Kapler and Klentak on the phone, apologized to the manager and GM
  • it’s “premature” to speculate whether Herrera has played his last game as a Phillie
  • Herrera’s name was taken off the All-Star ballot
  • Nick Williams was called up
  • the Phillies are going to be transparent with this situation
  • he’ll defer to Gabe Kapler on playing time, but this does open the door to more center field reps for Scott Kingery
  • MLB and the players union will direct the investigation, it’s not a team-led thing
  • the Phils found out about the arrest at 9:45 this morning
  • I don’t think we have a choice” as far as the length of the investigation and this process.
  • By rule, Herrera gets paid while on leave

Good to get Klentak out there for transparency purposes, I’d say.

Here’s tonight’s lineup:

  • McCutchen 8
  • Segura 6
  • Harper 9
  • Hoskins 3
  • Realmuto 2
  • Hernandez 4
  • Kingery 5
  • Williams 7
  • Pivetta 1

    that bitch probably deserved it

      If she’s a mudshark, she deserves to end up like Nicole BROWNED Simpson. All these violent monkeys need to be caged and returned to the point of purchase. The only good they do is regularly kill each other.

  • Just sayin'.... May 28, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    …that’s about the only thing he’s hit hard all year.

  • Just sayin', part two May 28, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    From the mug shot alone, he should get two life sentences.

  • Guesty McGuest May 28, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    Good thing he sucks, otherwise they’d have a problem. As it is, cut his ass (after, of course, the investigation).

  • Sean Burke May 28, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    Can see her saying something wise to herra after losing big at the tables & Odubel putting her in a sleeper hold

    • Formerly Trump Marina May 28, 2019 at 5:52 pm

      The Golden Nugget? Really?
      Big spender…

  • nicole brown simpson May 28, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?

    • Mr. Higgins May 28, 2019 at 6:26 pm

      I see OJ and he look scared… and I would be scared too. Lookie here

      • Peter Jennings May 28, 2019 at 7:42 pm

        Can you hear anything Mr. Higgins?

      • Ole black oj May 28, 2019 at 9:00 pm

        Kill his white wife
        Lookie, lookie here

  • Okay? May 28, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Herrera is in big trouble. He needs the Smollett alibi. He needs to say two large Nigerian brothers wearing Trump hats and shouting M A G A stuff attacked the girl.

  • What’s May 28, 2019 at 7:43 pm

    Administrative league?

  • I want to bang Taryn Hatcher May 29, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    He makes over $5 million a year and goes to the Golden Nugget?

  • William Jefferson Clinton May 29, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    Funny how some companies tolerate women beaters and having racist staff members and some companies don’t.
    Goes to show the character of the people running the company -OR- the lack thereof.

    • Bleeding Green May 30, 2019 at 2:28 am

      Racism isn’t the problem. The ones who dominate the violent crime and welfare statistics are a problem. The Left say they aren’t capable of racism. They all need to be returned to the point of purchase.
