Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odúbel Herrera has been suspended for the rest of the 2019 campaign. His suspension is unpaid.

Herrera was involved in a domestic violence incident with his girlfriend on Memorial Day in May. This week, his girlfriend elected to no longer press charges against him.

The suspension will be for 85 games, including the postseason. It will be retroactive to June 24th, as he violated the Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

He has agreed to not appeal his discipline. In addition, he will have to undergo a treatment program.

“My office has completed its investigation into the allegations that Odúbel Herrera violated Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Having reviewed all of the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Herrera violated the Policy and should be subject to discipline in the form of an unpaid suspension that will cover the remainder of the 2019 season.”
