Major League Baseball and the MLBPA have agreed to extend Marcell Ozuna’s administrative leave through the end of the postseason according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Gabe Burns. Ozuna was originally placed on leave September 10 and then had it extended again September 17.

No real updates here other than it will likely be after the completion of the postseason before the league announces the results of its investigation into Ozuna. Ozuna appeared in court virtually on September 9 where he entered into a negotiated resolution that will require him to be placed on six months of supervision and undergo a 24-week family violence intervention program. If Ozuna completes all of his requirements, then all of the charges could be dropped in as soon as three months.
Even with the negotiated resolution, Ozuna will still likely face discipline from the league. The Braves have had no comment on his status since his arrest citing the league’s investigation.
