In light of this being such an ugly issue in the NFL, Major League Baseball is being proactive in developing a domestic violence policy. Thankfully we haven't had to hear as much about players being involved in it as we have in other sports.

The basic agreement may be amended soon when MLB and the Players Association meet.

According to the L.A. Times, progress is being made:

"MLB will Try to Implement a Policy on Domestic Violence"

By BILL SHAIKIN

Incoming MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred says the league hopes to have a domestic violence policy in place soon

On the day after the NHL suspended Kings defenseman Slaya Voynov after his arrest for alleged domestic violence, the incoming commissioner of Major League Baseball said his league hopes to have a policy in place to cover such incidents next year.

Rob Manfred, who replaces the retiring Bud Selig in January, said the league and its players' union have had multiple conversations about the issue.

"We're having ongoing discussions with them," Manfred said before Game 2 of the World Series. "The tone has been very positive. I'm sure, like with most issues in recent years, we'll come up with a good solution."

Tony Clark, the executive director of the union, declined to commit to a timetable for the adoption of a policy.

"Our commitment is to making sure we have a policy that is representative of the concerns of both parties," Clark said. "Is there a time frame? Is there a drop-dead date by which we want to have it in place? No."

The issue of how professional sports leagues handle domestic violence issues exploded into a national debate when the NFL suspended Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for two games in July, then suspended him indefinitely in September, ostensibly after the league reviewed additional video of the incident.

Rice has appealed the indefinite suspension and reportedly has filed a grievance against the Ravens, claiming they wrongfully terminated his contract.

The NFL had no domestic violence policy in place at the time of the Rice incident. The NBA is reviewing its policy to decide whether discipline should be imposed before a conviction. The NHL disciplined Voynov under a clause in its collective bargaining agreement authorizing suspension of a player "subject to a criminal investigation."

Until MLB adopts a policy, the commissioner would have the right to impose discipline for domestic violence incidents under the "just cause" provision of the collective bargaining agreement. The union would have the right to file a grievance on behalf of the player.

"We watch what goes on in other leagues, to understand all the distinct issues," Manfred said, "and try to pay attention to what's going on around us."

Good to know. I do not like that Tony Clark says there is no time frame. What if something happens between now and then? I would suggest they carefully put the policy together but not drag their feet since the point seems to be pro active.

I hate to say he could have used better wording there.

MLB is "covering all bases", it seems, with the new domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy, which was adopted last Friday.

And now, it appears we have our first-ever suspension by the Commissioner. A recent investigation by Major League Baseball has concluded that Yankees reliever Aroldis Chapman will be penalized for 30 games of the regular season.

I'm glad now the Dodgers withdrew their offer. I hope this is a sign to others that MLB is taking abuse seriously.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia has been suspended for 15 games beginning on Opening Day for violation of league policy, stemming from a previously-posted incident in October.

Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna has been suspended for 75 games for violation of the DV policy, but not many details have been provided.

Cubs second baseman Addison Russell has been placed on administrative leave after his wife has alleged domestic violence over a period of time in their marriage. This one seems like a tricky one because of social media postings going back to last year. Article from mlb.com

It has been brought up in the last week since this happened, because of the Astros being in the playoffs, but Roberto Osuna's assault charge was dropped when he agreed to a restraining order. Article from USA Today

Wow!--I got home from work a few minutes ago and what do I see among the sports stories of the day but Jints president Larry Baer caught on tape in a public altercation with his wife, pushing her out of a chair, which took place in San Francisco this morning. Police were not called to the scene.

I'm leaving this here since there were no charges filed (yet) and MLB is investigating the incident.

Yep that was pretty disturbing. I cannot imagine what his defense will be.

By this point, it's not relevant--sadly--because the D.A. has declined to press charges.

Julio Urias has been reinstated with the Dodgers--and I'll have more to say on that later.

I was pretty surprised to hear on the radio, that Urias was back with the team on the road. I am sure you did not expect something like that so soon.
