NEW YORK (AP) Atlanta Braves outfielder Hector Olivera has accepted a suspension without pay through Aug. 1 for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. announced the suspension Thursday, saying it is retroactive to April 30 and covers 82 games. Major League Baseball said Olivera will not appeal and that he may participate in extended spring training activities during the remainder of the suspension, followed by a rehabilitation assignment beginning no sooner than July 15.

The 31-year-old Olivera was arrested April 13 and charged assaulting a woman at a hotel outside Washington, D.C. He was charged with assault and battery, a misdemeanor, and bond was set at $10,000.
