No charges filed by the police yet, so we'll have to see if this effects his ability to come back to America in time for Spring Training

Isn't there an accusation out there for Starlin Castro as well?

Last year yes, but the State's Attorney did not press criminal charges on account of insufficient evidence. I don't remember hearing anything further on the topic so I'm guessing his accuser never filed a civil lawsuit.
