The Dodgers released in a statement that they are still gathering information regarding the incident, but they decided to make the move until they found out more. The league is also conducting an investigation, which has the rest of the Dodgers' organization staying quiet. Manager Dave Roberts was asked about it on Tuesday, but said that he was "choosing my words wisely," and added "I don't know the facts."
Domestic violence is an issue that Major League Baseball has been forced to deal with a lot in recent years, including 11 players getting investigated, and nine facing a suspension since 2016. This is a process that the league takes their time with handling, as it has gone on for weeks and even months in the past, and there is no official timetable on this process. The 22-year-old entered the league at 19, but missed a lot of time following shoulder surgery. He began the season in the starting rotation, but has since been moved to the bullpen, and now to the sidelines for now.
