Phillies' Odubel Herrera Suspended 85 Games for Domestic Violence Allegations

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera received an 85-game suspension from MLB for domestic violence allegations brought forward by his girlfriend, Melany Martinez-Angulo, in May.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reported the update Friday and noted Herrera will not appeal.

Herrera was placed on administrative leave by the Phillies in late May while MLB investigated the situation. He last played May 26 in a loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Atlantic City Police Department released a statement May 28 saying Herrera was arrested May 27 and stating his 20-year-old girlfriend was found with "visible signs of injury to her arms and neck that was sustained after being assaulted by her boyfriend," identified as Herrera.
