Aroldis Chapman will not face domestic violence charges. That doesn't mean he won't be punished by Major League Baseball for the incident. MLB is currently doing the own investigation and this, along with a couple of others, will set the tone for future domestic violence incidents involving MLB players, via NY Post:
“When you have a new policy, the first ones take on a special significance in terms of tone and precedent and all those things,” Manfred said Thursday at the MLB quarterly owners’ meetings. “I’m going to make sure that I know everything I could possibly know about each of these cases before I make any decisions.”I would be shocked if Chapman didn't end up with a multiple game suspension.
