Tokyo Yakult Swallows slugger Wladimir Balentien, who last year broke the Japanese home runs record, was released on bail on Wednesday following his arrest on charges of domestic violence.

Balentien paid $50,000 bail and must stay away from his wife, Karla. The 29-year-old is scheduled to hold a news conference on Thursday.

Yakult official Masayuki Okumura, who is in charge of overseas recruitments, arrived in Miami after Balentien's release and is scheduled to hold talks with the player.
