Report: Rockies Shortstop Jose Reyes Arrested for Domestic Abuse


By JOHN DORN


Veteran MLB shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested on Oct. 31 in Hawaii after allegedly grabbing his wife by the neck and pushing her into a glass door, according to local TV station KHNL. The incident allegedly occurred in a hotel room while the couple was on vacation. Reyes was arrested after security was called to the room.

Details are scarce, but Reyes is reportedly out on bail and seems to be back at his New York home. He has been active on both Twitter and Instagram in recent days.



This will be the first notable legal case for commissioner Rob Manfred to handle since taking office before this past season. Over the summer, the league and players union announced a new Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

The policy provides guidelines for the league in handling instances of domestic violence accusations before players have been convicted. Under the agreement, Manfred can place accused players on paid leave for up to a week while assessing punishment. Players can also be suspended before being charged, though the regular season is still several months away.



Reyes, 32, has been a likely trade candidate this offseason, currently employed by a Rockies organization that's shifting toward a younger roster. As an older shortstop in decline and still due $48 million in salary over the next two seasons, interest in Reyes wasn't expected to be great. This incident could make it impossible for Colorado to move him.

Reyes is a four-time All-Star, with his last appearance coming in 2011 -- the year he won a batting title with the New York Mets. He's New York's franchise leader in triples and stolen bases, and had spent the previous two-and-a-half seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays before being traded in July. He also played for the Miami Marlins in 2012.

The Rockies released a statement late Monday night, saying they are "extremely disappointed and concerned."



MLB released a statement Tuesday morning:



The league has opened an investigation, and Manfred said he cannot comment fully until it is complete.
