The Astros eventually released Vasquez not long after they received an affidavit detailing the incident, and Major League Baseball suspended him indefinitely following the events.

Danry Vasquez was arrested on domestic violence charges in 2016.

Almost two years after former Corpus Christi Hooks baseball player Danry Vasquez was arrested on suspicion of assault family violence, surveillance video capturing Vasquez repeatedly beating his girlfriend surfaced on Wednesday.

The above video was recently released by the Corpus Christi Police Department, where Vasquez is shown walking down a back stairwell with his girlfriend. Vasquez also reportedly threatened a team employee when the incident was initially discovered. The case was officially discussed on Tuesday, according to Nueces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez."At that point, probation checked with us and he had done everything we asked him to do, so I was forced to dismiss the case", Nueces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez told KRISTV.

Danry Vasquez, an outfielder with the minor league Lancaster Barnstormers, was arrested for allegedly beating up his girlfriend at a Texas stadium in 2016 while he was playing for the Corpus Christi Hooks, the minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros.

Why did #DanryVasquez beat the glasses of that girl face to "sympathetically" put it back on for her just to beat it off again??? The two walk down the stairs, where she is hit a third time.

"Yes I've seen the video, that's what happens in domestic violence cases", Gonzalez said.

"I'm hoping Mr. Vasquez will be the poster boy for our program and never hurt somebody that he's in a relationship with and only time will tell", he continued.

The Lancaster Barnstormers took to Facebook to announce the decision made by manager Ross Peeples.

Again, the Astros released him days after the incident. "Neither I, nor the Barnstormers' organization as a whole, can condone or associate with that behavior".
