Another suspension under baseball's domestic violence policy.
FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:
Major League Baseball suspending Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman for 30 games for an incident involving his girlfriend back in October.
He has accepted the suspension, which includes 30 days without pay and 30 days of unaccrued service, and will not appeal. The 30 days of unaccrued service means he will be able to become a free agent after the season.
Commissioner Rob Manfred discussed the policy in January:
(Manfred) "Like every institution, we're not perfect, we're not always right, but we really would like to send the right message in terms of what we do here."
Chapman does not face criminal charges from the incident and maintains his innocence.
Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was placed on leave last week until his domestic violence case in Hawaii is resolved.
