Odúbel Herrera Suspension
In New Jersey, Herrera was arrested and charged with simple assault on May 27th, following reports of a domestic violence incident at the Golden Nugget.
He was taken into prison without incident after authorities found his girlfriend, a 20-year-old woman, with “obvious evidence of harm to her arms and neck”.
Six months in prison and a $1,000 fine are the maximum penalties for a simple assault in New Jersey.
The Phillies removed Herrera’s player banners from Citizens Bank Park and asked MLB to remove his name from the All-Star vote while MLB conducted its own inquiry.
Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy was violated when Melany Martinez-Angulo abandoned her allegations against Herrera, although he was suspended for the rest of the season.
There was a mixed reaction from Phillies fans and players when it was announced that Herrera will be allowed to play for the organization again in 2021.
After consulting with domestic violence organizations, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski approved the contract for Herrera.
Concerns over Herrera’s performance and the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak prevented him from joining the Phillies until spring training in 2021, despite the fact that the Phillies were not explicitly entitled to impose extra sanctions beyond the 85-game suspension set by MLB.
Hererra apologized to the media in March 2021 for the event and acknowledged that he might not be accepted by everyone.
After the event, he planned to meet with every player in the Phillies’ clubhouse to discuss their concerns.
Pitcher Aaron Nola stated he “believe[d] in second chances” and that he hoped his teammates would be just as accepting as a first baseman and Phillies union leader Rhys Hoskins told reporters.
