CHICAGO (AP) — ishing its investigation of domestic violence allegations against Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell by his ex-wife Josh Hader Jersey , Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday night.“Right now, we’re kind of going day by day,” Manfred said. “That’s the best I can do for you. The most important thing is to take our time, make sure we have all the facts, and make sure we try to make a decision at a point in time that it doesn’t affect roster decisions and things like that.”Manfred said it’s “conceivable” a decision is announced before the end of the playoffs Starlin Castro Jersey , though he would not say if it’s likely. He spoke prior to the wild-card game between Chicago and Colorado.Russell has denied the accusations. He was placed on administrative leave Sept. 21 after his ex-wife, Melisa Reidy, re-iterated claims of domestic abuse. He was not on the wild-card roster.MLB has said it began an investigation last year after allegations first became public.Reidy posted a photo on her Instagram account with a caption suggesting her husband of about 18 months had been unfaithful to her. In another post, a user — described by Reidy as a close friend —claimed Russell had “hit” his wife. The post was later deleted. Reidy declined to talk to MLB at the time because she decided it was not in her family’s best interests, her attorney http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey , Thomas Field, said last year.In September, a blog post attributed to Reidy described more detailed allegations, including years of physical and emotional abuse. Less than 12 hours later, MLB announced Russell had been put on leave under MLB’s domestic violence policy.Chicago acquired Russell in a July 2014 trade with Oakland. He helped the Cubs win the World Series two years ago Martin Prado Jersey , batting .238 with 21 homers and 95 RBIs in 151 games.Russell hit .250 with five homers and 38 RBIs in 130 games this season.

I'm appreciative that professional baseball players are tested more frequently than any professional athlete and we should all be thankful that testing is working. Eric is a tremendous young man and he unknowingly made a mistake and he will have to accept his suspension, work hard and be ready to go after the suspension is served. We remain proud of who Eric is as a person and will support him as an organization."Skoglund was going to enter spring training next month competing for the final spot in Kansas City's starting rotation.A third-round pick out of Central Florida in 2014, Skoglund made his MLB debut in 2017. The southpaw appeared in 14 games last season, posting a 5.14 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 70 innings.The Royals placed Skoglund on thedisabled list in May with a sprained UCLin his left elbow.
