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.
