Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was released by Mexican authorities on Thursday after his former partner told a judge in Yucatan state that she would not bring charges.
Arozarena was arrested on Tuesday on custody of his daughter just weeks after he was named the MVP of the American League Championship Series.
Yucatan prosecutors confirmed Thursday that Arozarena has been released after the former partner said any damage had been settled.
Arozarena did not make a public statement and it was not clear if he had a lawyer.
Yucatan prosecutors said Tuesday that Arozarena was being detained “because of problems with his ex-partner”.
It was not clear if he was officially charged with a crime. Under Mexican law, prosecutors have two days to decide whether to bring charges. Usually, suspects are held in prison pending decision.
Local media reported that Arozarena married a Colombian woman earlier this month in Merida, capital of the state of Yucatan.
The rays said Tuesday that they were aware of reports that Arozarena had been arrested.
Arozarena hit .377 with 20 home runs and 14 RBIs in 20 postseason games for Tampa Bay.
