WHAT BAN MIGHT REYES FACE?

Jon Heyman breaks news on Facebook now?

Half a season with no testimony from his wife and no formal charges would be an extremely aggressive punishment. It will be interesting to read the explanation from the Commissioner and the MLBPA response.

Jose Reyes should hear his penalty from MLB for domestic abuse soon, and word is that it’ll be at least 60 games and perhaps significantly longer than that.

Eighty games, or about a half a season, may be a fair ballpark estimate, according to some.

While Reyes was not criminally charged for an incident involving his wife in Hawaii, there’s little doubt Reyes will receive at least double the 30-game ban imposed on Aroldis Chapman, who became the first MLB player to receive a ban since MLB installed a specific domestic abuse policy back in August with the union’s approval.

Reyes’ offense has been seen as more serious, as hotel workers at their Maui hotel reported that Reyes’ wife Katherine suffered injuries to her neck, wrist and thigh. Katherine did not cooperate with police, leading to charges being dropped. Nor has she cooperated with MLB.

Commissioner Rob Manfred has authority to impose bans for domestic abuse stemming from the policy done jointly with the players’ union.
