Sources: Rays OF Arozarena released in Mexico

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was released in Mexico’s Yucatan state Thursday prior to a scheduled hearing following allegations of domestic violence, sources told ESPN’s Victor Alvarez.

Legal sources in Yucatan told ESPN that Arozarena was released from all charges when he reached an agreement with his former partner, who decided not to take legal action against the Rays player.

A hearing scheduled for Thursday in Yucatan was suspended.

The Rays had said Tuesday that they were aware of the reports that Arozarena had been detained.

Arozarena hit .377 with 10 home runs and 14 RBIs in 20 postseason games for Tampa Bay. He was named MVP of the American League Championship Series.
