Baseball prospect released after video is released of him allegedly beating his girlfriend

A baseball prospect has been released by his team after a disturbing video was released on Tuesday.

Danry Vasquez, a 24-year-old Venezuelan outfielder who signed with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball ahead of the 2018 season was released on Tuesday. KRIS 6 in Corpus Christi, Texas, obtained a video that allegedly shows Vasquez beating his girlfriend in the stairwell of a minor league baseball stadium. The publication obtained the video through an open records request on a plea deal that Vasquez agreed to back in 2016.

The video is reportedly from a security camera at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi. It is incredibly tough to watch.

Full warning – this is a very graphic video. The man in the video strikes the woman numerous times. Via KRIS 6:

Vasquez was part of the Houston Astros farm system at the time. He was released after the incident.

Vasquez, on Tuesday, was released by the Barnstormers. They issued a statement on Facebook about the decision.

Vasquez reportedly paid a fine and attended classes as part of his plea deal.
