Rockies Fearing the Worst for Reyes Suspension

Monday, March 7

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported Colorado is preparing for what could be a "lengthy suspension" for the four-time All-Star.

Reyes was arrested Oct. 31 for an alleged domestic-violence incident in Maui, Hawaii, per ESPN.com. ESPN.com noted Reyes allegedly shoved his wife into a glass door in the hotel they stayed at and was later released after posting a $1,000 bail.

On March 1, Major League Baseball suspended newly acquired New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman for 30 games after a police report revealed Chapman was accused of firing a gun eight times and choking his girlfriend, per Jeff Passan and Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports.

Nick Groke of the Denver Post reported Reyes is scheduled to go on trial April 4, and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred told Groke he plans to act quickly once the trial concludes.

"My expectation is, once that process plays out, we'll be in position to act quickly," Manfred said. "We'll have access to all the facts."

Reyes has three years remaining on a six-year, $106 million deal he signed with the Miami Marlins in December 2011. The Rockies are the third team Reyes has played for since signing that deal. Miami sent him to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012 in a trade that centered around pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson. Toronto then sent him to Colorado last season for All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

Reyes, the highest-paid player on the Rockies, is set to earn $22 million this year, per Spotrac. He batted .259 in 47 games for Colorado in 2015.
