Back in October, New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia was arrested at his New Jersey home after police found reason "to believe domestic violence had occurred." Familia's wife had a scratch on her chest and a bruised cheek. The case against Familia was dismissed in December, in part because his wife asked for the charges to be dropped. He is still subject to discipline under MLB's domestic violence policy, however, and his suspension will be announced in the coming weeks. The league's domestic violence policy allows commissioner Manfred to suspend players without criminal charges or even an arrest. Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman was suspended 30 games last year after an alleged domestic violence incident at his Florida home even though he wasn't arrested or charged.
