New York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez now has to leave the Upper Brookville home he bought last year.

As Newsday's Jim Baumbach and Anthony Rieber report, a judge has granted an order of protection to both Rodriguez's common-law wife and father-in-law. Rodriguez can return once to the house before Saturday to retrieve his belongings. He must be accompanied by New York City police officers.

K-Rod, as the baseball player is known, allegedly attacked his father-in-law Wednesday night at Citi Field, sending the 53-year-old to the hospital.

Rodriguez purchased the six-bedroom, 6.5-bath spread in July 2009 for $2.3 million. The 2.21-acre property has a heated pool with a waterfall, a gym, a wine cellar, a new gourmet kitchen, a full guest wing and lots of marble. It is located on a cul-de-sac off Route 25A.

Taxes are about $27,266 a year, according to the real estate listing for the property.

The house had been listed for $2.599 million, spending 111 days on the market before Rodriguez bought it. It was built in 1985.

His next court appearance is Sept. 14.
