Day one of the Winter Meetings wrapped with a twist. What everyone thought to be a done deal between the Dodgers and the Reds that would send Aroldis Chapman to Los Angeles turned out to be not so done.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Davie Police Department were dispatched to the pitcher’s home in South Florida after receiving a domestic disturbance call. Chapman allegedly fired eight shots and choked his girlfriend. No charges were filed.
As of Tuesday morning, Davie Police Department released a report saying there was “insufficient evidence” and they did not charge him. There were conflicting stories, no cooperating witnesses and no physical injuries.
Joe Torre, MLB’s chief baseball officer said in a press conference Tuesday that there is no timetable in making a decision in the closer’s status under the league’s new domestic violence policy.
