Addison Russell Releases Statement, Calls Allegations 'Completely False'

Cubs shortstop Addison Russell has been placed on leave by Major League Baseball following allegations that he was physically and verbally abusive during his marriage. But as their relationship continued, the physical, verbal and emotional abuse continued, especially when "he was under the influence", Reidy-Russell wrote. The post was later deleted. "When the allegations against Addison Russell became public on June 7, 2017, the Commissioner's Office's Department of Investigations immediately commenced an investigation".

In a lengthy blog post published this week, with the headline, "You no longer have a secret, you have a story", Reidy alleged the abuse began not long after their wedding in June 2016 and sometimes occurred in front of their son, Aiden, born in August 2015.

Whatever the case, the league has kept the investigation open since Reidy-Russell's refusal last summer - something Epstein said he knew from infrequent updates but Cubs manager Joe Maddon claimed he didn't. The league said Reidy had declined to cooperate with investigators past year, but new efforts would be made.

The action against Russell comes nine days before the end of the regular season, with the Cubs all but assured of a playoff spot.

The Cubs entered the day with a two-game lead atop the National League Central and just a few hours before a game against the crosstown rival White Sox.

"The first time I was physically mistreated by my spouse, I was in shock". He was not placed on administrative leave a year ago.

Reidy also said that she was "cheated on with so many different women" and lost confidence in herself.

"I couldn't wrap my head around what just happened", she wrote.

Russell has been the subject of a domestic violence investigation by the Major League Baseball since June 2017. Why did he get so angry? "Of course I forgave him and assumed it would never happen again".

Russell denied those allegations at the time, saying in a statement, "Any allegation I have abused my wife is false and hurtful". I saw a darkness in him I've never seen or experienced in him or anyone else. "After he would calm down from his angry spells, I'd always get the most honest apologies, making me believe how sorry he was & he's working on bettering himself".
