Breaking news on a Tuesday afternoon.

According to Jim Salisbury and Corey Seidman at NBC Sports Philadelphia, Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera was arrested last night and charged with domestic violence.


“…The incident involved his 20-year-old girlfriend and took place at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. Herrera was subsequently released.

According to the police report, the victim “had visible signs of injury to her arms and neck that was sustained after being assaulted by her boyfriend, David Odubel Herrera, during a dispute.”

No other details right now, but I’ll update as info crosses the feeds.

Edit –

Here’s the police report:

FYI, Major League Baseball and the players’ union agreed to a joint domestic violence policy in 2015.

These are some of the bullet points, after the jump:

The Commissisoner’s Office will investigate all allegations of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse involving members of the baseball community. The Commissioner may place an accused player on paid administrative leave for up to seven days while allegations are investigated. Players may challenge any decision before the arbitration panel.

The Commissioner will decide on appropriate discipline, with no minimum or maximum penalty under the policy. Players may challenge such decisions to the arbitration panel.

Training, Education and Resources:
All players will be provided education about domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse in both English and Spanish at regular intervals. Resources to players’ families — including referral information, websites, hotline numbers and outreach facilities — will be made available, along with a confidential 24-hour helpline.

Edit 2:

Edit 3 is the Phils’ statement on the matter:

UPDATE: We’ve obtained the mugshot of David Odubel Herrera:

    1, never knew his name was David
    2. she had it coming

    will all the white knights that ripped the SI Scout article earlier this year apologize?

    • Shart Shartveit May 28, 2019 at 12:43 pm

      No matter what happens, the true victim is always an angry white man, somehow.

        aka the conquerors & inventors

  • Orenthal James Simpson May 28, 2019 at 12:12 pm

    Odubel is innocent! Free Odubel!

  • Scotty Jetpacks May 28, 2019 at 12:24 pm

    Looks like I’ll be getting some increased playing time.

    Batteries better be thrown at this pos if not cut .

  • Kate Smith's ghost May 28, 2019 at 12:41 pm

    What a dilemma for SJWs here – Support the minority athlete or support the ‘battered’ woman?

    • Youse May 28, 2019 at 12:52 pm

      Obviously the white trash gold digger attacked Odubel with her arms and neck.
      Her white racist male brother Trump fan made her do it.

    • Danny the count May 28, 2019 at 1:03 pm

      They always take the poor players side. Never see them nuts protesting or being outraged by chick beaters .
      Why the fuck were they off on Memorial Day sbyo. Should be the biggest baseball day of the year

      • Dan May 28, 2019 at 1:54 pm

        1) They were off because they just played 17 days in a row.
        2) Yeah, no. You might want to check out the reaction to Reuben Foster tearing his ACL. They were very much enjoying that karma, even though Foster’s ex claimed that she made up the story.

  • Mr. T- POTUS May 28, 2019 at 12:50 pm

    My wall would solve this problem.

  • Phillies are Phine with Domestic Abuse May 28, 2019 at 12:54 pm

    MLB may hand out discipline, but I don’t expect the Phillies to punish him. Brett Myers punched his wife in front of a bunch of people on a Boston Street and they didn’t seem to care then.

  • Eagleye5 May 28, 2019 at 1:02 pm

    That was more than a decade ago, and domestic violence for public figures has altered drastically just in the past 2 years.

  • FREE KWAME May 28, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    Now maybe he can get back to the fryers…

  • Licensed to Ill May 28, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    Ship him back to the Bernie Sanders approved Socialist paradise of Venezuela.

    • Bleeding Green May 30, 2019 at 2:41 am

      Agreed. Send all these violent animals back the cesspools they crawled out of.
      Hope is a mudshark. They get what they deserve, like Nicole BROWNED Simpson.

  • Rod King May 28, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Somewhere Brett Myers is wondering what the big deal is

  • Puncho Herrera May 28, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    Also Jason Michaels, not to mention Richie/Dick Allen.

  • Franzke, Frandsen and Friends May 28, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    NBCSNPhilly uses a three-year old video from the CSN days to tell the viewers about how the Phillies telecast cannot be reproduced, etc. without their permission, etc. David Odubel and Maikel Jacinto Franco are the featured players. Time to change it. Use the Phanatic, who could never be traded, and so they can use this video for years to come.
