There hasn’t been much Braves news to talk about as we approach the three-month mark since Spring Training was halted because of the coronavirus pandemic, but this morning, there was a concerning report regarding one of the Braves newest acquisitions — Marcell Ozuna. According to Andy Slater of Fox Sports, the outfielder was on the wrong side of domestic abuse, resulting in a facial injury.

The incident took place in Miami, where Ozuna drove to the police station to file a report. Luckily, it doesn’t look like the injury was anything more than a minor laceration. However, Ozuna’s wife was arrested following a multi-week investigation. She pleaded not guilty and was issued a stay-away order, according to Slater. As of now, that is all the information we have on the situation. Hopefully, it will be resolved peacefully, but anytime domestic abuse is reported against a man or a woman, it needs to be taken with the utmost severity.
