The Colorado Rockies designated shortstop Jose Reyes for assignment.
The Rockies reinstated Reyes from the restricted list before the move.
Now they have 10 days to trade him, release him or have him accept a demotion to the minors.
Reyes did not participate in spring training and was eventually suspended through May 31 after being charged with domestic violence.
Prosecutors dropped the charge saying Reyes’ wife was not cooperating.
Reyes is due $22 million in each of the next two seasons.
