Aaron Boone on the disappointment regarding Domingo Germán being put on administrative leave while MLB investigates any violation to their Domestic Violence Policy: "This is something that, baseball aside, this is a bigger issue, obviously. When you hear the words domestic violence, it's one of those things that stops you in your tracks. I give Major League Baseball and the Players Association credit for doing their part in, several years ago, trying to be ahead of this and putting disciplinary action in place, hopefully being part of the solution to what is a problem in our society."
