Reyes entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday to allegations of abusing his wife at Hawaii resort last month, the Associated Press reports. With Reyes opting not to attend his arraignment, defense attorney David Sereno entered the not guilty please on his behalf. Commissioner Rob Manfred announced earlier this month that an internal investigation into the Oct. 31 incident has been launched, and the situation is expected to serve as a first test case for MLB's new domestic violence policy. The court process figures to play out in full before any possible league discipline is issued.
Reyes' recent arrest will serve as the first test case for MLB's new domestic violence policy, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports. Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday that an internal investigation is ongoing. The commissioner has the power to determine any penalty, with no minimum or maximum punishment set. Considering the graphic nature of the alleged assault, it seems quite possible that Reyes could miss time without pay in 2016. Prospective owners will need to keep an eye on this situation as it develops.
Reyes has been arrested in Hawaii on domestic abuse charges, Hawaii News Now reports. Full details regarding this situation have not been revealed, but Reyes is reportedly facing charges for an incident that occurred Oct. 31 in Hawaii. Neither Reyes nor the Rockies have yet to comment on the situation.
Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes (Achilles) is in the lineup hitting second Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports. He is back in the lineup after missing four straight games with the Achilles issue. Reyes may just be a big name at this stage of his career, as the production has lagged far behind his draft day price tag. It will be interesting to see if the Rockies have any success in moving on from the veteran during the offseason so that Trevor Story can get a legitimate shot in 2016.
Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes (Achilles) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers. Reyes was able to get in a light workout on the field Saturday, but his status for the final week of the season remains up in the air. Those in weekly leagues where lineups lock Monday afternoon may feel more comfortable using a shortstop option with a steadier playing-time outlook over the next few days. Cristhian Adames has been working as the Rockies' primary shortstop since Reyes went down with the injury.
