Mets RHP Jeurys Familia has been suspended for the first 15 games of the 2017 season due to the alleged domestic violence incident he was involved in last October.
MLB, who concluded its investigation in to the situation earlier this month, reportedly reduced the punishment due to a lack of physical evidence in the case and because charges were eventually dropped.
During the incident, Familia's wife, Bianca Rivas, acknowledged that she was in a dispute with her husband, and that he was drunk and "going crazy." The charges were dropped on Dec. 15, with the prosecutor saying that scratches and bruises on Familia's wife had explanations unrelated to the initial charge, with one of them caused by their son, according to Newsday.
Last season, Jose Reyes was suspended 52 games by MLB for violating the league's domestic violence policy, while Hector Olivera received an 82-game suspension and Aroldis Chapman was held out for 30 games...
