Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested in Hawaii for allegedly assaulting his wife in their hotel room on Halloween, according to multiple reports.

Reyes reportedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into the glass balcony door. Security was called and Reyes was arrested. Reyes' wife, Katherine, told police she suffered injuries to her thigh, neck, and wrist. She was taken to hospital and has since been released. Reyes was released on bail, according to Hawaii News Now.

"We are extremely disappointed and concerned to learn of the allegations involving Jose Reyes," the Rockies said in a statement. "We continue to gather information and will address this matter appropriately, in accordance with Major League Baseball's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy."

Major League Baseball released a new domestic violence policy in September that allows it to suspend players with pay while legal charges are pending in ''exceptional cases.''

''Players are husbands, fathers, sons, and boyfriends. And as such want to set an example that makes clear that there is no place for domestic abuse in our society,'' players' union executive director Tony Clark said in the release.

Reyes is a 13-year veteran and four-time All-Star, and has two years and a guaranteed $48 million remaining on his contract.

The 32-year-old appeared in 47 games for the Rockies this season following a trade from the Toronto Blue Jays in late July.
