Major League Baseball is expected to open an investigation into Ozuna following his arrest, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports. He could be subject to the league’s domestic-violence policy and faces a potential suspension.

Ozuna was previously placed on the IR list as he will miss at least six weeks because of the two fingers he fractured while helping the Braves claim a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

  1. Sandy springs police report they actually walked in on the assault in progress and witnessed him choking her, strike her with his cast and throwing her against the wall. He did that right in front of police. I have no idea what happened that lead to this crazed violent attack, but if the police hadn’t shown up when they did this very well could have been a homicide. His career may be done.
