Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was placed on paid leave Tuesday under Major League Baseball’s new domestic violence policy pending completion of criminal proceedings. He will not report to spring training.

The 32-year-old Reyes, a four-time All-Star, was arrested in Hawaii at a Maui resort on Oct. 31 following an argument with his wife and pleaded not guilty to a charge of abuse of a family or household member. He was released after posting $1,000 bail and is scheduled for a trial starting April 4, the day the Rockies open the season at Arizona.

Tigers closer to arrive

Francisco Rodriguez is on his way to spring training.

After missing a week of camp because of visa issues, the Detroit Tigers’ veteran closer from Venezuela has those issues resolved, is traveling Wednesday and should be in Tiger Town on Thursday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday morning that he expected Rodriguez to arrive “sooner than later.”

Rodriguez, 34, is entering his 15th season in the major leagues.
