Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes has now been suspended without pay through May 31.
This comes after following a domestic violence investigation. The incident in question happened in October at a hotel in Hawaii. He was charged with domestic violence against his wife. Reports from local news in Hawaii claims grabbed his wife by the throat and then preceded to throw her into a door.
He will not appeal his suspension. If he was, he could play until a new ruling was decided. Heis the second player to be suspended under MLB’s domestic violence policy.
Reyes also has agreed to donate $100,000 toward the prevention and treatment of domestic violence as part of his punishment from MLB.
His trial was later cancelled as his wife began not cooperating with the prosecutors. In February, he was put on paid leave by MLB.
With this suspension he will have missed 51 games of the 2016 season. The Rockies have been in traded talk since his replacement has set rookie records so far this season.
