Rays’ Arozarena arrested inMexico


Tampa Bay outfielder Randy Arozarena has been arrested in Mexico’s Yucatan state for a situation involving allegation­s of domestic violence, just two weeks after he won the Babe Ruth Award for the most valuable player in the postseason.

The Yucatan state prosecutor­s’ office confirmed Tuesday that Arozarena was detained “for problems relating to his ex-partner.”

He has not been formally 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.

Arozarena has made no public comment and it was not clear if he had a lawyer yet.

He hit .377 with 10 homers and 14 RBIs in 20 postseason games for Tampa Bay.

♦ Hall of Fame manager TomLasorda‘ s condition has improved while he remains hospitaliz­ed in Fullerton, Calif. Los Angeles Dodgers spokesman Steve Brener said Tuesday that the team’s 93-year-old former manager has been taking online calls from former players and coaches at a hospital in Orange County.
