Disturbing video shows former Astros prospect hitting then-girlfriend

HOUSTON -- A disturbing video has been released of a former Houston Astros minor league player that appears to show him beating his then-girlfriend.

In August 2016, Danry Vasquez was charged with assault bodily injury of a family member.

At the time of the incident, Vasquez was playing for the Astros minor league affiliate team in Corpus Christi. Vasquez allegedly struck his girlfriend multiple times at the home stadium of the Double-A Hooks.

An affidavit said Hooks officials reported they discovered the footage after being approached by a male employee who told them Vasquez threatened him.
