Discipline for Rockies' Reyes coming soon

Jose Reyes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred says he expects to rule soon on possible discipline for Rockies SS Jose Reyes.

Reyes was scheduled to go to trial April 4 after pleading not guilty to abusing a family or household member, a charge that stemmed from an Oct. 31 incident with his wife at a Maui resort hotel. Reyes was suspended with pay under baseball's new domestic abuse policy, an action Manfred took just before the shortstop was to report to spring training.

Hawaii prosecutors dropped charges last week and said his wife was not cooperating.

"The ability of law enforcement to provide us with information generally goes up, and they have more flexibility to provide us with information once the legal process comes to an end one way or another," Manfred said Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium.

"We're trying to take advantage of additional flexibility to get all the information that's available as quickly as possible."

A four-time All-Star, Reyes, 32, started accruing his $22 million salary Sunday, the day the season opened.

TECH TALK: Wearable technology is coming to Major League Baseball. The sport's playing rules committee approved two devices for use during games this season, the Associated Press reported. The Motus Baseball Sleeve measures stress on elbows and the Zephyr Bioharness monitors heart and breathing rates. In addition, the committee approved a pair of bat sensors for use on field during workouts, one from Blast Motion and the other from Diamond Kinetics.

WRIGLEY MARQUEE: Wrigley Field's iconic marquee is ready to return home to the Friendly Confines. The Cubs say it is scheduled to be installed today after an offseason restoration that included structural repairs and cosmetic work.

ASTROS: RHP Ken Giles was surprised manager A.J. Hinch picked RHP Luke Gregerson over him to be the closer. "Whatever A.J. wants, that's what I'm going to do," Giles said. "It's his decision, so I need to follow it." Giles, 25, had a 1.80 ERA in 69 games for the Phillies in 2015 and converted 15 of 17 save opportunities.

BREWERS: Former Rays RHP Matt Garza went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle in his back. RHP Tyler Cravy was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

CARDINALS: C Brayan Pena had surgery to remove loose cartilage from his left knee. He's expected to miss most or all of April.

DODGERS: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is rehabbing from shoulder surgery last May, is set to throw two simulated innings Thursday in Arizona.

YANKEES: RHP Bryan Mitchell will be sidelined at least four months after surgery to repair a broken bone in his left big toe.
