Major League Baseball and the players' association agreed to a domestic violence policy in 2015, giving Commissioner Rob Manfred the right to investigate and impose discipline.
Herrera, a Philadelphia resident, was given a summons and released. Herrera will be inactive for up to seven days while Major League Baseball investigates the alleged incident.
Herrera, 27, is hitting.222 with a home run and 16 RBIs this season.
"This morning we were made aware of an alleged incident involving Odubel Herrera", the statement read.
I mean sure, he's immensely talented - he was the team's lone All-Star representative in 2016 after all - but ever since Gabe Kapler came to town it's always seemed like the "Odubel-era" had an expiration date.
Players who are accused of domestic violence are subject to an internal investigation.
In a statement, the Phillies said they reported the incident to the league immediately after learning about it. The team has club options for 2022 and '23.
