Just found this article in from Baseball America. They made that policy sound nice and tough with it was revealed last summer, but in this article it sounds quite subjective:
“The domestic violence policy essentially created a board—which will include members of the commissioner’s office and the MLBPA—that will evaluate a player’s conduct and help determine punishment and treatment options, including counseling, psychological evaluations and other measures to protect a spouse or children, depending on the incident. A player who fails to comply with a plan may be subject to discipline by Manfred.
The policy allows for Manfred to place a player accused of domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse on administrative leave—with pay—while the incident is investigated.”

I’ll have to research this a bit more and will write more on the topic later…
