MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Major League Baseball "appears to be in the final stages" regarding the impending suspension of Jose Reyes.
Heyman does note that it's possible the decision could be delayed into the following week. Not surprisingly, the report also adds that Reyes "is expected to receive a significant ban" for his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident even though charges were dropped. The suspension could be significantly more than the 30 games Aroldis Chapman got. Apr 22 - 4:32 PM

According to the Associated Press, a Hawaii judge has approved dismissing a domestic abuse charge against Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes.

This makes official what was reported two weeks ago. Reyes was arrested in October after he allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass door. However, his wife refused to cooperate with prosecutors. The judge signed off on the move to dismiss the charge, but will give prosecutors about two years to re-file charges if his wife eventually decides to cooperate with the case. Even though Reyes wasn't convicted, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred still has the ability to levy a suspension. There should be more clarity on the matter soon, though the Rockies aren't really missing him right now.
Apr 11 - 9:18 PM

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said that he's not sure when MLB commissioner Rob Manfred will rule on a suspension for shortstop Jose Reyes.

Prosecutors dropped a domestic abuse charge against Reyes last week after his wife didn't cooperate with the case, but Manfred can still levy a punishment under MLB's domestic abuse policy. A suspension still appears likely, but the Rockies aren't sure about a timeline. "We've very much been bystanders, waiting on this policy like everybody else," said Bridich. "I don't know if there's a ticking clock right now. They don't give us that kind of information." Reyes is on paid leave pending a decision from MLB. Trevor Story, who hit two home runs on Opening Day, will continue to fill in at shortstop for Colorado.

According to the Associated Press, Maui prosecutors are moving to dismiss a domestic abuse charge against Jose Reyes.

Reyes was scheduled to go to trial on April 4, but deputy prosecuting attorney Kerry Glen said Wednesday that she's dropping the case because Reyes' wife isn't cooperating. The Rockies' shortstop previously pleaded not guilty to abusing a family or household member. Reyes has been on paid leave pending the completion of his case, but MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has the ability to levy a suspension regardless of a conviction.
Mar 30 - 3:15 PM

Major League Baseball has placed Jose Reyes on paid leave pending the completion of his criminal case for domestic abuse.

Commissioner Rob Manfred has the power under the league's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy to suspend Reyes before his case is decided upon, but he has apparently decided that he'll wait. Reyes' trial is set for April 4, although it's very likely that a plea deal will be reached beforehand. Until then, Reyes will not be in camp with the Rockies.
Feb 23 - 5:31 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports the Rockies' front office isn't thrilled about having Jose Reyes at spring training while his domestic abuse case is still active.

Heyman said it's "hard to see" Reyes attending the team's first workout on Thursday. The Rockies may arrange for Reyes to be away from the team until his court case is settled. MLB hasn't suspended Reyes yet but that should be coming shortly. Reyes' trial doesn't begin until April 4. It could be a while before this all gets sorted out.
Feb 22 - 3:57 PM

Christian Red of the New York Daily News reports that Jose Reyes will stand trial on domestic abuse charges in Hawaii.

The trial is currently slated to begin on April 4, which also happens to be Opening Day for the Rockies. However, the likelihood of Reyes agreeing to a plea deal before then in order to avoid trial seems very likely. Reyes was involved in an incident on October 31 in which he allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass door. The shortstop is facing a suspension from Major League Baseball which is expected to be handed down prior to the beginning of spring training.
Jan 15 - 8:54 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Major League Baseball is expected to hand down suspensions for alleged domestic violence prior to spring training.

Rosenthal says it's "probable" that the suspensions will be announced before camp opens and they're likely to come no later than March 1. Jose Reyes, Aroldis Chapman and Yasiel Puig are among those that are facing suspensions. There is no minimum or maximum length for the impending suspensions, and it's unclear whether the players will be allowed to participate in spring training while suspended.
Jan 8 - 9:08 AM

Jose Reyes has pleaded not guilty to a domestic abuse charge involving his wife.

Reyes was arrested and then released after posting a $1,000 bail following an incident on October 31 in which he allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass door. Major League Baseball instituted a domestic violence policy earlier this year which gives commissioner Rob Manfred the power to discipline Reyes even if he isn't convicted.

Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes is scheduled to appear in a Maui courthouse on November 24 for his arraignment and plea for an alleged domestic violence incident.

Reyes was arrested on October 31 in Hawaii for allegedly assaulting his wife, Katherine Ramirez Reyes, in his hotel room. According to a television report, he allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass door. He was released on $1,000 bail and ordered to have no contact with his wife for three days. MLB recently instituted a new domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy which could allow commissioner Rob Manfred to discipline Reyes even if he isn't convicted.

Chelsea Davis of Hawaii News Now reports that Jose Reyes was arrested in Maui for domestic abuse involving his wife.

Davis says the incident occurred on October 31 in the couple's Wailea hotel room. Reyes is currently out on bail. Worth noting is that Major League Baseball instituted a domestic violence policy earlier this year which gives commissioner Rob Manfred the power to discipline any offender. Manfred would not have to wait for the legal system to play out before handing down any potential suspension.

Jose Reyes (Achilles) went 3-for-5 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Reyes missed nearly a week of action with a sore left Achilles but it didn't seem to be an issue Tuesday. Still, the Rockies figure to be careful with him over the final days of the season.
Wed, Sep 30, 2015 08:12:00 AM

Jose Reyes (Achilles) is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

It's his third absence in a row. Reyes has been dealing with a sore left Achilles off and on for the last few weeks. At this point, the Rockies might just shut him down. Cristhian Adames will start at shortstop and bat seventh Saturday against Los Angeles.

Jose Reyes is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday afternoon against the visiting Pirates.

It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran shortstop. Cristhian Adames is filling in.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 12:56:00 PM

Jose Reyes (Achilles) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Reyes missed the entire weekend series in Seattle due to some tightness in his left Achilles. He's ready to go now, though, and his reward will be to face Clayton Kershaw.
