NEW YORK – Yankees pitcher Jimmy Cordero was suspended for the remainder of the season on Wednesday by baseball commissioner Rob Manfred for violating the sport’s domestic violence policy.

MLB said the 31-year-old right-hand has accepted the suspension and will miss the final 76 games of the season and the postseason.

Cordero was 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA in one start and 30 relief appearances and has a salary of $720,000, the lowest in the major league. Lui sat out the 2021 season after Tommy John surgery while with the White Sox organization and spent 2022 with the Yankees Triple-A team in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees said in a statement that they support MLB discipline and “there is no justification for domestic violence.”

New York pitcher Domingo Germán was suspended 81 games under the domestic violence policy he served in 2019 and 2020. Germán pitched MLB’s 24th perfect game last week.
