NEW YORK — Rockies SS Jose Reyes was suspended Friday, the second player penalized under Major League Baseball's new domestic violence policy, and will miss the rest of the month.
Reyes won't appeal, the commissioner's office said. The penalty stemmed from an alleged altercation in October with his wife at a Hawaii resort.
The four-time All-Star loses 52 days of pay under the agreement, or $6,251,366 of his $22 million salary, the Associated Press reported.
"I want to apologize for everything that has happened," Reyes said in a statement released by the players union.
Reyes, 32, has not been with the Rockies all year and will miss the first 59 days of the season, or 51 games.
Discipline under the MLB policy, agreed to last summer, isn't predicated on a conviction. Reyes had been scheduled to go to trial April 4 after pleading not guilty to abusing a family or household member. Hawaii prosecutors dropped charges before the trial date and said his wife was not cooperating.
Rookie Trevor Story has filled in and has been one of baseball's big surprises, ranking among the MLB leaders in homers (11) and RBIs (27).
