Jose Reyes Suspended

MLB – Jose Reyes

Today the MLB announced that it would be suspending Jose Reyes through May 31st. The suspension comes without pay and he will not appeal.

He was suspended because of his arrest in Hawaii on Oct. 31 for domestic violence. The suspension will cause the shortstop to lose over 6 million dollars of the 22 million he was suppose to make.

The suspension is retroactive to Feb. 23 meaning that he has already served 34 games of the punishment.

Jose earlier today said in a quote that he is “ready to put this behind him and get back to doing what he loves, playing baseball.
