Where does Reyes go from here? An even better question may be, is Reyes going to be the first players to really pay for his off the field mistakes? Will the business that is MLB finally say enough is enough and let this still viable player find his way in to early retirement?
Had rookie up and comer Trevor Story not been off to such a tremendous power outbreak would Reyes be manning the middle infield for Colorado? We will never know. What we do know though is that it appears Reyes’s time in Colorado is over, unless he finds his way on to their AAA roster. Is him being DFA’s a sign of the Rockies not tolerating his actions or just an easy way to side step the issue because Story is playing so well?
In the next ten days we will know what Reyes’s short term future will be, but will we have a better understanding of MLB’s views on domestic violence as well?
