REPORT: Texas Rangers prospects being investigated for sexual assault of teammate

Local News
Multiple Texas Rangers prospects were questioned by authorities in the Dominican Republic after a video surfaced showing a group of players sexually assaulting an underage teammate in a hazing incident.
Yahoo reports Dominican prosecutors have yet to press charges but have told a court they intend to charge at least four players who reportedly held down a teammate and masturbated him.
One of the players who is expected to be charged is the younger brother of Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor, who is also named Rougned, along with Yohel Pozo, both 19-years-old.
The alleged assault took place in October and was captured on Snapchat.
In a statement to Yahoo Sports, the Rangers said:

“The Texas Rangers became aware of an incident at our Academy in the Dominican Republic and we acted promptly to open an investigation. We have reported the incident and are cooperating fully with Major League Baseball and the authorities in the Dominican Republic. With this being an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment at this time.”
