Reyes will be suspended through May 31, Jaff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reyes was expected to receive a suspension of 60 or more games, but commissioner Rob Manfred decided to make it retroactive to Feb. 23, effectively making it a 51-game suspension. The 32-year-old will not appeal the suspension and can begin playing games in extended spring training immediately, with a rehab assignment likely to come on June 1. Although he could return to the Rockies sometime in June, the Rockies don't seem too intent on giving Reyes' job back to him, as they are reportedly in trade talks with a few different teams in order to get him off their hands and let Trevor Story take over shortstop for the rest of the season. Regardless, the Rockies will likely cross that bridge when it comes and will focus on getting Reyes back into game shape.

Reyes is expected to receive a suspension of 60 or more games, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Following a November arrest for domestic violence allegations, Reyes has been on paid administrative leave through the first five weeks of the season. An official announcement is expected in the coming days, and while he may opt to appeal his eventual suspension, Reyes doesn't figure to return before the All-Star break.

Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday that he expects a decision on a penalty for Reyes to be announced in a matter of "days not weeks," MLB.com's Tracy Ringolsby reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manfred also said the disposition of the criminal case in Hawaii could allow MLB to access the evidence from the police investigation, which would aid in dealing with Reyes. He is expected to receive a suspension, it is just a matter of how long it will be. That said, shortstop prospect Trevor Story has been the talk of the Rockies after a couple days, belting two home runs in his first big league game Monday, so Reyes may find playing time hard to come by even when he has finished serving his suspension.

Reyes will remain on administrative leave until commissioner Rob Manfred concludes his investigation into the shortstop's domestic violence case, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The criminal charges levied against Reyes were dropped earlier Wednesday, but the All-Star shortstop will likely still end up serving a suspension. He'll remain in a holding pattern on administrative leave until Manfred hands down his final decision, but the Commissioner's investigation could drag into the season. As long as the investigation is ongoing, Trevor Story will man the shortstop position for the Rockies while Reyes will remain sidelined.

The domestic abuse charges against Reyes have been dropped because his wife was not cooperating with the investigation, the Associated Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He was scheduled to go to trial April 4, but now that the criminal proceedings have been scrapped, MLB can move to rule on a suspension for Reyes. The fact that the charges were dropped has relatively no impact on what MLB will choose to do, as this is hardly a "not guilty" ruling. Unlike with Aroldis Chapman's domestic incident, there was no gun involved in the Reyes dispute, but the details are notably more extreme, so fantasy owners should be prepared for a lengthier suspension than the 30-game suspension Chapman received earlier this month.

Reyes was placed on paid leave Tuesday pending the completion of his criminal proceedings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Paid leave does differ from a suspension, so commissioner Rob Manfred is still expected to levy a suspension upon the 32-year-old as a result of the domestic abuse charge filed against Reyes over the offseason, regardless of the legal outcome. The shortstop's trial isn't set to begin until Apr. 4 and it's unclear how long the proceedings will last, so while an exact timetable remains unset, Reyes likely won't eligible to play for the foreseeable future.

Reyes will stand trial on domestic abuse charges, the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The trial is scheduled for April 4, but there is still a chance a plea agreement could be reached to avoid a trial. The 32-year-old Reyes entered a not guilty plea back in November. Regardless of the outcome of the case, Reyes could face discipline under the MLB's new domestic violence policy, which was agreed upon by both Major League Baseball and the players' association back in August. However, at this point it's unclear exactly what that discipline may be.

Reyes entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday to allegations of abusing his wife at Hawaii resort last month, the Associated Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Reyes opting not to attend his arraignment, defense attorney David Sereno entered the not guilty please on his behalf. Commissioner Rob Manfred announced earlier this month that an internal investigation into the Oct. 31 incident has been launched, and the situation is expected to serve as a first test case for MLB's new domestic violence policy. The court process figures to play out in full before any possible league discipline is issued.

Reyes' recent arrest will serve as the first test case for MLB's new domestic violence policy, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday that an internal investigation is ongoing. The commissioner has the power to determine any penalty, with no minimum or maximum punishment set. Considering the graphic nature of the alleged assault, it seems quite possible that Reyes could miss time without pay in 2016. Prospective owners will need to keep an eye on this situation as it develops.
