The case against Vasquez was dropped after his girlfriend declined to press charges and the 24-year-old baseball player went on to sign a contract with the Lancaster team.

A former Astors prospect has been caught on camera violently assaulting his fiancee.

'There is no choice but to sever the relationship, ' said manager Ross Peeples.

A professional baseball player has been released from his Pennsylvania team after video of him beating his then-girlfriend in a stadium stairwell emerged Wednesday.

Neuces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez said in a phone interview that Vasquez had completed all the requirements made in his plea deal including taking classes, according to KRIS 6.

Vasquez, who came up through the Detroit Tigers organization but was in the Houston Astros' farm system during the time of the incident, has played in his native Venezuela the last two years (Major League Baseball suspended him indefinitely after the incident). The graphic video shows Vasquez hit a woman on two occasions, knocking off her glasses on both occasions and on one occasion he hits her from behind unawares and she falls to the ground.
