Addison Russell returns to Cubs following MLB inquiry

John catches up with WGN Radio Sports Reporter Mark Carman after an investigation launches on Chicago Cubs Infielder Addison Russell.

FILE - In this August 4, 2015, file photo, Chicago Cubs' Addison Russell stands in the dugout during a baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Pittsburgh.

After the incident, Major League Baseball is reportedly looking into the accusations, and the Cubs kept Russell away from the ballpark Thursday to attend to the matter.

In the Instagram photo that hinted at her potential breakup from the Chicago Cubs shortstop, the brunette beauty is pictured in a swimsuit smiling at the beach. "This is my job. I just feel like the work I've been doing (with the coaches), just trying to shorten everything up is allowing me to be more relaxed at the plate and just feel more comfortable in the box". We will play the second game of a four-game series against a very good team. Javy Baez started at shortstop.

Russell's golden reputation took a hit Wednesday night when allegations of domestic abuse were posted in the comments section of his wife Melisa's Instagram account.

Russell's problems really began when his wife suggested in a post he was unfaithful, writing: "Being free to be able to make your own choices for your own happiness beats being cheated on, lied to, & disrespected any day".

Russell denied the accusation on Thursday.

Major League Baseball has yet to officially comment on the investigation or the allegations.

"I talked to him last night", Maddon said Friday. I love being here, in this clubhouse with the boys, having fun. Epstein and manager Joe Maddon met with Russell afterward. It's good to have him back. He has handled himself extremely well.

"I don't think we'll change anything we do interactively with him". The story has not yet fully developed - but I'd expect some sort of team response before tonight's game against the Marlins. The 23-year-old has performed poorly in 2017, hitting just.209 with three homers and 19 RBI.

Bryant said that he doesn't try to get to know much about teammates' personal lives but expected the situation to be addressed. "There's periods of times when you're struggling and scuffling".
