Aroldis Chapman rejoins Yankees at Spring Training

- Closer Aroldis Chapman rejoined the New York Yankees after missing one day of spring training while tending to a family matter in Miami and said he hasn't heard from Major League Baseball about possible discipline under the sport's new domestic violence policy.
Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said Monday in Arizona that he has made "additional progress" toward decisions on two of the first three cases under investigation and expects an announcement in the next couple of days.
"In general, I never hurt anybody ever in my life," Chapman said through a translator. "That's not my character or the person I am."
Chapman is under investigation for an incident at his house in Florida in October involving his girlfriend. Chapman is alleged to have fired a gun during the incident.
Prosecutors declined to file charges. Chapman said he would appeal any suspension to baseball's arbitrator.
