“In accordance with the terms of the Policy, Cordero will participate in a confidential and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program overseen by the Joint Policy Board,” MLB said in a statement.
The Yankees expressed their support for MLB’s decision.
“The Yankees fully support Major League Baseball’s investigative process and disciplinary action against Jimmy Cordero,” the team said. “There is no justification for domestic violence, and we support the goals, standards and compliance of MLB’s Joint Policy on Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse.”

It’s unclear what prompted Cordero’s suspension for the remaining 76 games of the season.
He missed the entire 2021 season after Tommy John surgery while with the Chicago White Sox and spent 2022 with the Triple-A Yankees in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
This year, he appeared in 31 games for the Yankees, his most recent outing coming Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals. He produced a 3.86 ERA in 32 2/3 innings pitched.
