Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera’s scheduled arraignment in Atlantic City was waived today by his attorney.
His next court appearance will be scheduled by the court.
Herrera was due in court on assault charges stemming from a domestic incident last month at the Golden Nugget Casino.
Authorities say Herrera’s 20-year-old girlfriend had injuries to her arms and neck.
Herrera has been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball
Herrera has been with the Phillies since 2015 and was an All-Star in 2016. He had been struggling this season, hitting only .222 with a .629 OPS.
Herrera signed a five-year contract extension with the Phillies in 2016.
