Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odúbel Herrera has been suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season for violating the MLB's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy, the league announced on Friday.

According to the release, Herrera's unpaid suspension will cover 85 regular season games and any postseason games the Phillies may appear in. Herrera has agreed not to appeal the ruling and will participate in a "confidential and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program" to address his violations.
