As expected, with Marcell Ozuna’s court date concluding yesterday, Major League Baseball has launched their own investigation into the Braves outfielder.
MLB has launched an investigation into Marcell Ozuna.
Ozuna has been placed on administrative leave for seven days by MLB & the MLBPA. Like we saw with Trevor Bauer until today, it's likely to be extended week-to-week until the investigation concludes. Via @DOBrienATL

As I broke earlier yesterday, Marcell Ozuna will be entering a pre-trial diversion program that can last up to six months. If Ozuna completes his obligations early, he can have the supervision program terminated after three months. It’s unknown how long MLB will suspend Ozuna for, as I also broke over the summer, prosecutors dropped the felony charge against Ozuna after reviewing police body camera footage.
Major League Baseball’s investigation will be independent of Fulton County and Sandy Springs Police’s. It’s unknown if they will have access to the body camera footage, but one thing is likely for sure — Ozuna is going to be suspended. While on Administrative Leave, he will continue to be paid by the Braves.
