Rockies SS Reyes suspended until end of month

Charges against the Rockies’ Jose Reyes were dropped.

Charges against the Rockies’ Jose Reyes were dropped.

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).

Indians: OF Lonnie Chisenhall was put on the bereavement list after a death in his family.

Padres: Starter Andrew Cashner (right hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Reds: The league suspended XHP Ross Ohlendorf for three games for throwing at Pittsburgh's David Freese this week after warnings had been issued. Manager Bryan Price was suspended one game and fined.

White Sox: LHP Matt Purke as called up from Triple-A Charlotte and the team requested waivers on LHP John Danks. Danks, 31, in his 10th season with the team, was 0-4 with a 7.25 ERA in four starts. The team is responsible for his remaining prorated salary, or $11,135,246.

Yankees: Gary Sanchez, 23 was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to be the DH this weekend against White Sox LHPs Chris Sale and Jose Quintana.
