Major League Baseball saw a prominent athlete from the Tampa Bay Rays arrested in Mexico. Randy Arozarena was in the Yucatan State of Mexico when law enforcement was called to the government over domestic abuse & custody disputes. The announcement regarding Randy Arozarena is a stark change compared to early November, where the Outfielder acquired the “2020 Babe Ruth MVP Award”.
Prosecutors in Yucatan State confirmed on November 24th that they’d detained Randy Arozarena for relationship disputes with his Ex-Partner. Details regarding what those disputes were & what actions unfolded during this event weren’t provided by Yucatan law enforcement. However, social media footage from locals indicates that arguments centred around Randy’s child with his ex-partner.
Charges haven’t been laid to Randy Arozarena, with Mexican law enforcement provided 48-Hours to determine if detained civilians are deserving of a criminal record. It’s suspected that Randy Arozarena will have formal charged laid in Mexico, prompting his immediate removal & ban from that nation.
The Tampa Bay Rays provided an official statement regarding the manner, with team personnel indicating that reports about Randy Arozarena are accurate. Clarification regarding what the Tampa Bay Rays will do for their Outfielder wasn’t provided. Team personnel suggested that more information is being collected & no further comments will be sustained. Randy Arozarena himself hasn’t been available for comment, with lawyers also not speaking on his behalf. This suggests that domestic disputes with Arozarena’s Ex-Partner are accurate.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred mentioned that an investigation would begin on Randy Arozarena. The domestic violence policy in Major League Baseball requires that corporate officials investigate the actions of Arozarena. There’s the possibility that he’ll receive a prominent suspension for 100+ games. Typically, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred doesn’t react with leniency when athletes have committed crimes.
Randy Arozarena is likely shocked by the last 48-Hours. November 23rd saw his namesake being influential throughout professional baseball, with now rumours circulating baseball communities on what Arozarena & his Partners relationship was like before ending. Unless banned from MLB, another team other than the Tampa Bay Rays will select Arozarena. That’s because he maintained a .377 Average with 14 RBIs & 10 Home Runs.
