San Francisco Giants president and CEO Larry Baer has been suspended without pay through July 1 following Major League Baseball's investigation into a physical incident between Baer and his wife.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced the suspension in a news release Tuesday, explaining that after reviewing the results of the investigation, he found that Baer's conduct was "unacceptable ... and warrants discipline." Baer will be suspended for more than three months and "undergo an evaluation by an expert to determine an appropriate treatment and counseling plan," according to the league.

"In determining the appropriate level of discipline, I find that Mr. Baer should be held to a higher standard because as a leader he is expected to be a role model for others in his organization and community," Manfred said. "Based on my conversation with Mr. Baer, it is clear that he regrets what transpired and takes responsibility for his conduct."
