New York Yankees pitcher Jimmy Cordero has been suspended for the remainder of the 2023 MLB season, including any postseason games, after violating the league's policies on domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse.

The decision came after a thorough investigation conducted by Major League Baseball (MLB). Cordero has accepted the suspension and has been immediately placed on the league's restricted list, although no specific details regarding the violation were disclosed.

The New York Yankees organization has issued a statement expressing their acceptance of the punishment imposed on Cordero. They strongly condemn domestic violence and affirm their support for MLB's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse Policy.

The team stands in alignment with the objectives, standards, and enforcement of these policies. During the current season, the 31-year-old right-handed reliever has made appearances in 31 games for the Yankees.

With 32.2 innings pitched, Cordero has maintained an ERA of 3.86 and recorded 34 strikeouts. His absence for the remainder of the season will be a significant loss for the team.

CNN has reached out to the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) for a comment from both the union and Cordero, but no response has been received yet. As part of the disciplinary action, Cordero will be required to participate in a confidential and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program.

This program will be supervised by the MLB and MLBPA approved Joint Policy Board. The suspension of Jimmy Cordero serves as a reminder of the serious consequences that can result from violating MLB's policies on domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse.

The league remains committed to maintaining a safe and respectful environment both on and off the field, and this case demonstrates their dedication to holding players accountable for their actions.
