Rockies sending Jose Reyes to extended spring training
ST. LOUIS (AP) The Colorado Rockies are sending Jose Reyes to extended spring training with no firm plan for when he's eligible to return June 1.
Reyes has been suspended without pay under Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. The team will make him available to media on Thursday at its spring training complex in Scottsdale, Ariz. The team said it would be the lone media access to Reyes prior to his rehab assignment, and that there would be no other access at the complex.
Manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday that he hadn't spoken with the 32-year-old Reyes. He wasn't sure how long Reyes would need to get ready.
The four-time All-Star's future with the Rockies is murky given the emergence of rookie shortstop Trevor Story.
Reyes' suspension stemmed from an alleged altercation with his wife at a Hawaii resort last October.
