The league says it’s investigating the circumstances of the charges in accordance with the joint domestic violence policy between MLB and its players association.
”MLB takes all allegations of this nature very seriously,” read the statement.
Commissioner Rob Manfred can place an accused player on paid leave for up to seven days as the allegations are investigated.
He can hand out discipline as he sees fits, regardless of whether a case goes to trial or not, with no minimum or maximum penalty outlined under the policy.
Police are not saying anything else in order to protect the identity of the alleged victim.
Osuna’s been released and is to appear in Old City Hall Court June 18.
