The Washington Nationals say that assistant hitting coach Jacque Jones has been suspended with pay pending an internal investigation.
Jones has been a member of the Nationals' organization since the start of the 2016 season.
According to USA Today, which obtained court documents, Jones and the Nationals are listed as defendants in a revenge porn lawsuit.
A search of court records revealed a civil case filed September 28 in which an unnamed plaintiff filed suit against Jones and the Washington Nationals in California Superior Court, San Diego County. The unnamed plaintiff alleges Jones had distributed nude photos of her without her consent. Playing for four teams during his Major League Baseball career, Jones finished his playing run with a .277 batting average, 165 home runs and 630 runs batted in.
The 42-year-old Jones retired as a player in 2008 after 10 years with four teams.
He played for Baker in 2006 with the Chicago Cubs and was in his second season on Washington's coaching staff.
In Jones's absence, minor league hitting coordinator Troy Gingrich will assume assistant hitting coach duties, with Rick Schu carrying out his normal duties as hitting coach.
