Just as Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was to be traded to the Dodgers in exchange for two prospects, the wheels came off of the bus. According to Yahoo Sports, Chapman was involved in a domestic altercation at his home in Miami back in October. Per his own admission, he was so mad that he punched through the window of his car parked in his driveway, then proceeded to fire multiple shots in the garage. There were no arrests and the incident remained suppressed…until the day of the intended trade. The article states:
MLB still plans to investigate the incident under its new domestic-violence policy. In a statement to Yahoo Sports, a league spokesman said: “We negotiated a domestic-violence policy and with information like this we would commence an investigation.” According to the domestic violence policy, a violator could be subject to suspension or fine at the discretion of the commissioner.
