It appears some type of resolution — or at least a more definitive answer — is coming soon from Major League Baseball in regard to Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes' likely suspension ahead of 2016 after he was arrested for domestic violence in October.

This, according to a Friday report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, who tweeted this morning:

But even though a decision is coming down, and likely very soon, there's still no indication as to how severe Reyes — and others waiting to hear about suspensions, including Aroldis Chapman and Yasiel Puig — will be punished:

Reyes was arrested in Hawaii on Halloween after allegedly hitting his wife in their hotel room, though news of the arrest wasn't made public for nearly ten days afterwards.

Since that time, and after other alleged domestic violence incidents perpetrated by Chapman and Puig, Major League Baseball has been working on how to best apply the sport's new Joint Domestic Violence Policy in these very public cases.

We'll have more on Reyes' punishment as news becomes available.
