Former MLB pitcher Sam Dyson has been accused of rape, battery and infliction of emotional distress, according to a report.
The allegations made by Dyson’s former girlfriend, Alexis Blackburn, were described in legal papers filed Monday in Florida’s 15th Judicial Court, according to SFGate.com.
Blackburn first went public with her accusations in November 2019 in a post on Instagram. Her claims were also the subject of an investigation by sports news site The Athletic.
In March, MLB suspended Dyson for the entire 2021 season following Blackburn’s claims. It was the longest player suspension ever handed out under the league’s domestic violence policy, USA Today reported at the time.
