Reyes was sent to the Colorado Rockies for Troy Tulowitzki as part of a blockbuster deal in July ahead of the trade deadline. Reyes began his stint in Toronto in 2012 following another big deal, involving the Miami Marlins.
The 32-year-old Reyes posted $1,000 in bond and was released.
The Rockies responded to the allegations in a statement on Twitter overnight, saying they "were extremely disappointed and concerned to learn of the allegations involving Jose Reyes."
The team also wrote that it will deal with the matter in accordance with Major League Baseball's new joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy introduced in August.
