Derek Norris has been banned by MLB for the rest of 2017

Norris is being penalized under MLB’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

“My office has completed its investigation into the allegation that Derek Norris violated Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence Policy on October 21, 2015.

Norris’s conduct warranted discipline under the Joint Domestic Violence Policy.

Norris denies the allegation against him, he and I have agreed that he will spend the remainder of the 2017 season away from the game and that he will forfeit $100,000 of his remaining termination pay from the Tampa Bay Rays, which will be donated by the Rays to one or more charitable organizations focused on preventing and treating survivors of domestic violence.
