A trade that would send Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman to the Los Angeles Dodgers is on hold after allegations of domestic violence came to light, according to a report from Yahoosports.com.

A police report obtained by Yahoo Sports said Chapman allegedly fired eight gunshots in the garage of his Miami-area home following an argument with his girlfriend. According to the report, she told police Chapman choked her and pushed her against a wall.

Chapman’s attorney, Jay Reisinger, told Yahoo Sports he and Chapman “deny the allegations as stated.” No arrest were made after the incident.

Chapman, a 27-year-old left-hander, is eligible for free agency after next year’s World Series. He threw the 62 fastest pitches in the big leagues this year, ranging from 103.92 mph to 102.36 mph, according to MLB’s Statcast computer system.

Chapman was an All-Star in each of the last four seasons. He joins a bullpen that already has closer Kenley Jansen, who like Chapman is eligible for salary arbitration this winter and can become a free agent next November. Jansen has 80 saves during the last two seasons. He figures to be the Dodgers’ setup man if he stays.

After defecting from Cuba in 2009, Chapman spent the last six seasons with the Reds and saved 146 games in 164 chances. He had a 1.63 ERA this year, when he struck out 116 in 661/3 innings.

ROYALS: Kansas City signed right-hander Chris Young to an $11.5 million, two-year contract that includes a mutual option for the 2018 season.

The veteran also is eligible for 250,000 in bonuses for active roster days. The mutual option is worth $8 million with a $1.5 million buyout.

The 6-foot-10 Young was the comeback player of the year two years ago with Seattle, but he had few suitors last offseason and signed with Kansas City in spring training. He went 11-6 with a 3.06 ERA for the Royals, starting in the bullpen before moving to the rotation.

He earned the win in relief in Game 1 of the World Series against the New York Mets. He also allowed two runs over four innings in Game 4, which the Royals ultimately won.

The Royals also agreed to a $25 million, three-year deal with reliever Joakim Soria that needs to be finalized.

Soria, a 31-year-old right-hander, was 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA in 72 relief appearances with Detroit and Pittsburgh this year. He had 160 saves in 180 chances for the Royals from 2007 to 2011.

NATIONALS: The players’ association has filed a grievance over Washington’s four-game suspension of Jonathan Papelbon that followed the pitcher’s fight with teammate Bryce Harper.

The grievance was filed shortly after the suspension was announced Sept. 28, costing Papelbon $284,153 of his $13 million salary.

“That’s business. It’s not personal between Papelbon and the Nationals, or Nationals to Papelbon,” Washington General Manager Mike Rizzo said Monday.

Unless settled or withdrawn, the grievance would be heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, most likely during spring training.

On the next-to-last weekend of the season, Harper flied out and headed to the dugout, where he and Papelbon exchanged words. The argument escalated, and Papelbon reached out with his left hand and grabbed Harper by the throat. Papelbon shoved the outfielder toward the bench.

CUBS: Apparently there are still bitter feelings over the fact that Kris Bryant wasn’t promoted to Chicago until April 17.

A grievance was filed against the Cubs by Bryant regarding service time that currently prevents Bryant from becoming eligible for free agency by one day, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.

According the Collective Bargaining Agreement, 172 days in the majors constitutes a full year of major league service. Bryant was promoted April 17 and spent 171 days in the majors.

By missing a full year of major league service by one day, Bryant won’t be eligible for free agency until 2021. Bryant wasn’t promoted until Mike Olt was diagnosed with a broken wrist. Bryant was upset at not making the opening day roster despite hitting nine home runs in spring training, and the Major League Baseball Players Association issued a statement that said “today was a bad day for baseball” shortly after Bryant was sent to the minors.
