by in News

Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of domestic battery in the parking lot of the Beverly Center, Los Angeles police officials said Tuesday.

Urías, a 22-year-old left-hander, was booked for misdemeanor battery, LAPD officials said.

He paid his $20,000 bail amount and was released Tuesday morning.

Police were called to the upscale shopping center parking lot at 8500 Beverly Blvd. at around 7:30 p.m., officials said. Urías was subsequently arrested.

Few details were released surrounding the arrest.

Urías has appeared in nine games this season, with four starts. He has a 2-2 record with a 3.18 ERA and 1.09 WHIP and has recorded two saves.

Due to a surplus of starters, Urías was moved to the bullpen last month. He last pitched Friday when he was credited with a three-inning save in a 5-0 victory over the Washington Nationals.
