Saturday, May 14, 2016
The shortstop has rightfully expressed his remorse and agreed to not appeal the suspension.
“I want to apologize for everything that has happened. I am sorry to the Rockies organization, my teammates, all the fans and most of all my family,” Reyes said in a statement released by his agents. “I am happy to put this all in the past and get back to doing what I love the most, playing baseball.
“My wife Katherine has remained by my side throughout everything and for that I will be forever grateful.”

An announcement on Jose Reyes’ suspension for a domestic-violence incident could come as soon as Friday, according to major-league sources.
The expectation is that Reyes will be suspended for at least 60 games, as previously reported by MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.

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.

“I’d like to know exactly what happened,” Monfort said. “It’s easy for us all to speculate on whatever happened. But until we really know, it’s hard. You’re dealing with a guy’s life.
“But if he did something wrong, he should pay for it.”
How many people don’t agree with his statement? The Commissioner’s Office will find that ascertaining exactly what happened will be difficult, if not impossible, when the witnesses don’t want to testify.

His early years were drenched in violence that no little one should ever have to witness.
“I’m not going to get too colourful with it. But it wasn’t pretty. The best way I can describe it is I can still remember things from when I was from three to five years old that are very vivid in my mind to this day. And it’s not something I would want anybody else to go through.

But will he get special treatment?
Even if the Dominican-born Reyes reaches a plea deal, however, there are potential serious ramifications to Reyes’ career if he is not a U.S. citizen. According to Michael Wildes, a former federal prosecutor and a managing partner at Wildes & Weinberg, convictions for domestic violence can lead to deportation.
“Domestic violence can see an individual get deported if he or she is not a U.S. citizen,” said Wildes. “Once punished, the government has the authority to remove an individual for a crime involving moral turpitude and aggravated felony. It can be a very fast track for immigration officials to issue a removal proceeding. The only way to prevent removal is to be exonerated or have the charges dismissed, or if the government believes it’s a “he said, she said” matter. I would hope Mr. Reyes has a good immigration lawyer.”
for his generous support.
