Braves' Hector Olivera placed on administrative leave
Atlanta Braves infielder Hector Olivera has been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball following his arrest Wednesday morning at the team's hotel in Arlington, Virginia.
Olivera was taken into custody by the Arlington Police Department early Wednesday after a woman called 911 from the Ritz Carlton at Pentagon City claiming that she had just been assaulted. She had visible bruises, police sources told Jeff Goldberg of ABC7 in Washington, D.C. MLB has already opened its own investigation. Olivera obviously won't be active for Wednesday night's game at Nationals Park.
Our models projected Olivera to post a .287 wOBA this season with 10 homers and a .239/.292/.371 slash on the year across 386 plate appearances.
