Cubs' Addison Russell: Tendered contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (suspension) was tendered a non-guaranteed contract for the 2019 season by the Cubs on Friday.

Russell will continue to serve his 40-game suspension at the beginning of next season due to his violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. In a statement released by the organization, Russell said he's complying with a treatment plan set up for him by the league and MLB Players Association and offered a "heartfelt apology to my family and my former wife Melisa for my past behavior." President of baseball operations Theo Epstein added that Russell being tendered a contract "does not represent the finish line" and that the shortstop has significant work left to do. Russell already served 12 games of his suspension, so he will miss the first 28 contests of the 2019 campaign without pay.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Handed 40-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell accepted and will not appeal a 40-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

This ban is retroactive to Sept. 21, so Russell has already served 12 games of the suspension. He will not be paid during this period and is set to participate in a "confidential and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program supervised by the Joint Policy Board." Russell's suspension stems from the league's investigation into abuse allegations from his ex-wife, which dates back to the 2017 season.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Suspension looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is expected to be suspended around 25-to-40 games for violating the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

According to Rogers, the league is expected to hand down the suspension within the coming hours. Russell has been on administrative leave after a blog post written by his ex-wife surfaced online, which detailed emotional, physical and verbal abuse she suffered during their marriage.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Placed on administrative leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was put on administrative leave prior to Friday's game "in accordance with the joint MLB-MLBPA domestic violence policy" in response to abuse allegations from his ex-wife, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Per J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group, this policy allows the league to place Russell on paid leave for up to seven days while allegations are investigated. A previous investigation into this matter from last June remained open even though his ex-wife declined to participate at that time. In the statement from the league, the closing line read, "We are are hopeful that this new information will allow us to complete the investigation as promptly as possible." The Cubs echoed these sentiments, stating that the organization takes allegations of domestic violence seriously and will cooperate with the league's investigation, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of The Chicago Sun-Times.
