A long suspension stemming from a domestic violence incident in October for newly-acquired Yankees pitcher Aroldis Chapman is "unlikely," according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.
Chapman fired eight gunshots in his Florida garage and was accused of choking his girlfriend, according to a Yahoo! Sports report. He is subject to MLB's domestic violence policy and could be fined and/or suspended.
The Yankees traded for Chapman on Dec. 28, giving up pitchers Rookie Davis and Caleb Cotham, and infielders Eric Jagielo and Tony Renda. However, according to Heyman, the price for Chapman dropped significantly due to the domestic violence incident. Last year, the Reds sought either pitcher Luis Severino or outfielder Aaron Judge, two of the Yankees' top prospects.
