We are aware of an incident involving Julio Urías. While we attempt to learn all the facts, he will not be traveling with the team. The organization has no further comment at this time.

This is the second time Urías has had a domestic violence-related arrest.

In May 2019, he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence after allegedly shoving a woman he was with at a Los Angeles shopping mall. No charges were filed, and the woman later told investigators, according to the Los Angeles TimesRichard Winton, she fell in a parking lot during an argument.

Although no charges were filed, Urías still served a 20-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

Urías has spent his entire eight-year major league career with the Dodgers, helping the team capture a World Series title in 2020 and winning the National League ERA Title in 2022 after posting a 17-7 record, 2.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 166 strikeouts in 175 innings across 31 starts.

The 27-year-old hasn’t been nearly as good this year, though he has still be an effective piece of the rotation with a 11-8 record, 4.60 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 117 strikeouts in 117.1 innings across 21 starts.

Urías last pitched in a Sept. 1 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

The Dodgers return to action on Tuesday against the Miami Marlins at loanDepot Park.
