Phillies centerfielder Odúbel Herrera was set to appear in an Atlantic City court today, but new broke that Herrera, via his attorney, had waived his arraignment appearance:

This appearance stems from an incident on May 27, when police were called to the Golden Nugget Casino following a report of physical harm to Herrera’s 20-year-old girlfriend, who contacted casino security regarding a physical altercation. Police took Herrera into custody from his hotel room and charged him with simple assault and knowingly causing bodily injury. Herrera’s girlfriend reportedly had handprint markings on her neck and scratches on her arm as a result of the alleged assault.

The Phillies put Herrera on administrative leave, pursuant to Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy on May 28. That same day, Phillies GM Matt Klentak updated the media on the team’s decision and Major League Baseball extended Herrera’s administrative leave on June 3. That extended leave is currently set to end on June 17, but with the court date needing to be rescheduled, it’s possible the leave will get extended again.

      1. I beg your pardon, Greek, but I am a Roxborough girl. Much more refined white trash, thank you very much.
