Washington Nationals infielder Starlin Castro is being positioned on administrative go away pending an MLB investigation into an allegation of home violence.
The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli reported Friday that Main League Baseball is inserting Castro on seven-day go away because it investigates an alleged home violence incident that occurred earlier this summer time.
Castro, age 31, has performed in 87 video games for the Nationals this season. Throughout 315 at-bats, he owns a .283/.333/.375 slash line with a .708 OPS, 38 RBI and a 1.3 WAR.
Just like Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer, who’s below investigation for allegations of sexual assault, MLB can initially place a participant on administrative go away for seven days below the joint home violence coverage. As a way to prolong the go away, which occurred with Bauer, MLB wants approval from the MLB Gamers Affiliation.
Castro shall be paid throughout his go away as MLB conducts his investigation. The Nationals are anticipated to fill his spot on the roster earlier than Friday’s sport.
