Four arrests have been made related to the deaths of Luis Valbuena and Jose Castillo. In other news related to the deaths, the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League announced that all scheduled games Friday were cancelled and flags will be flown at half-staff in all stadiums for three days.

Also a word from commissioner Rob Manfred today:

“It is clear by all the stories today that they loved baseball and made an impact on their teammates and the Clubs they represented,” he said, expressing “my deepest condolences to their families, friends and fans, particularly those in their native Venezuela.”

Here’s to hoping these arrests can at least add some justice to these senseless deaths.
