Dominican officials probe Rangers prospects in assault case
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Authorities in the Dominican Republic say they are investigating a group of Texas Rangers prospects who reportedly posted an image on social media showing a sexual assault on an underage teammate.
A spokeswoman for the Dominican prosecutor's office tells The Associated Press that a judge has ordered the players to be available for questioning. Tessie Sanchez said Tuesday that no one has been arrested.
Officials have not identified anyone in the case.
They say the incident allegedly occurred at a Texas Rangers complex in the southern coastal town of Boca Chica east of the capital.
The Rangers issued a statement saying they are aware of the incident and ''acted promptly to open an investigation.''
The team says it is cooperating with authorities and with Major League Baseball.
