The incident was first reported by PD reported Paul Hoynes, who noted that Roberto Perez was also under investigation. Hoynes and others have since amended the report, stating that Perez is not involved in the investigation.
Details of the case are unclear, but the incident reportedly occurred on January 23 while Salazar was in town for TribeFest.
It’s far too early to pass any judgement on Salazar, but given the recent attention placed on such cases stemming from the Ray Rice incident, it’s fair to assume this won’t be taken lightly by the Indians or MLB.
