MLB to investigate domestic violence allegation against Cubs’ Russell

Major League Baseball plans to investigate domestic violence allegations made against Cubs shortstop Addison Russell via social media Wednesday night, an MLB official said Thursday morning.

Russell’s wife, Melisa, suggested in multiple posts late Wednesday the couple was breaking up.

In a subsequent comment related to one of the posts, a woman Russell’s wife referred to as a close friend, accused him of “mentally and physically abusing her.”

MLB is investigating based on the posts and is expected to try to interview both the wife and the friend under its 2-year-old domestic violence policy.

Report: Mets’ Jeurys Familia receives 15-game suspension

According to a Wednesday morning report from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, New York Mets’ closer Jeurys Familia has finally learned his fate. After previously meeting with Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday, Familia has now been handed a 15-game suspension to start the 2017 regular season…..

The 27-year-old was originally charged with simple assault back in October following an arrest at his home. Police found Familia’s wife with both scratches on her chest and a bruise on her cheek while the charges were ultimately dropped as the case was dismissed by a New Jersey judge.

Nonetheless, the league has a no tolerance policy regarding domestic violence as Major League Baseball’s investigation did not end until Wednesday afternoon.
