Local newspaper Yucatan Ahora was the first to report the incident, and the Tampa Bay Times confirmed it with Arozarena’s agent, Abel Guerra.

“The only thing I know is he was hyper-sensitive about making sure that the child’s needs were being taken care of,” Guerra told the Tampa Bay Times. “He was always sending money down there, and he was very involved in her life. I don’t want to speculate about (anything else).”

Guerra said that he has not spoken to Arozarena, and he called it a “horrible, unfortunate situation.” Arozarena has not been charged yet. Mexican law allows a two-day period for prosecutors to decide whether to bring charges. Normally suspects are held in jail pending that decision.

Major League Baseball will investigate the situation, according to ESPN. The MLB and MLBPA joint domestic violence policy would dictate any punishment Arozarena might receive since the incident reportedly involved at least one family member.
