 PHOENIX (AP) -The Arizona Diamondbacks activated infielder Alberto Callaspo from the restricted list on Saturday, nine days after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife.
The Diamondbacks said Callaspo would rejoin the team Saturday night in Pittsburgh after agreeing to undergo counseling.
In a statement released by the team, club president Derrick Hall said a counselor met with Callaspo on Friday ``and found the player fit for work but recommended he undergo counseling.''
Callaspo and the organization then agreed to the counseling recommendation, Hall said.
The 24-year-old Venezuelan issued a statement through the team.
``I look forward to putting this unfortunate matter behind us and focusing on helping my teammates win on the field again,'' the statement read. ``I apologize to the players, the organization and our fans for any distraction this may have caused.''
Callaspo was taken into custody May 10 on suspicion of misdemeanor assault and felony criminal damage.
Court documents said Callaspo told police he argued with his wife and kicker her in the buttocks after she pushed him. He also said he threw a video camera and cell phone to the floor during the argument.
He made an initial court appearance the following day and was released without bail.
Callaspo was ordered to stay away from his wife of two years, Marianny Paola, and the couple's home. Callaspo and his wife have a 1-year-old child.
The Diamondbacks immediately placed Callaspo on the restricted list without pay.
Callaspo's reinstatement came two days after the baseball players association filed a grievance on his behalf.
The rookie, valued by the team for his versatility, is batting .215 in 33 games, playing third base, first base and the outfield at various times. He was the organization's minor league player of the year in 2006 after hitting .337 at Triple-A Tucson, leading the Pacific Coast League in hits with 165.
