Sometimes saying nothing says everything.

Cubs shortstop Addison Russell has been placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball in light of domestic violence allegations against him by his ex-wife. They were on top of her trying to meet at the time, but she declined.

The Cubs hold a slim lead atop the NL Central and the leave was announced just a few hours before their 10-4 loss to the crosstown White Sox. The league-imposed administrative leave, an intermediate step, can last up to seven days, after which MLB can request an extension for another seven days.

MLB "takes allegations of Domestic Violence seriously", the league said in a statement Friday.

Until a resolution, the league policy puts Russell in professional limbo, where Epstein sounded content to let him exist. This is about allegations of domestic abuse, not defensive replacements.

". It would have sent the wrong message to have Addison wearing a Chicago Cubs uniform this morning, so we fully support him being placed on administrative leave".

"All parties have an obligation to get to a just and fair resolution". They had the allegations from a post from her friend, but not hers directly. The baseball world was watching and the Cubs were listening to their conscience, which called late Thursday night. The MLB investigation was launched shortly afterward.

Melisa Russell went into detail in her blog Wednesday - claiming she was first "physically mistreated" by her husband in the months after their wedding in 2016.

Slain golfer, suspect lived contrasting lives in Iowa city
Paul Rounds, a public defender assigned to represent him, filed paperwork asserting his right to not speak to investigators. The sports world is paying tribute to Celia Barquin Arozamena, the Iowa State golfer who was found murdered on Monday.

"Emotional/verbal abuse started way before I even realized, eventually it started to be an everyday thing", Reidy wrote. "I couldn't wrap my head around what just happened. What did I do for him to want to put his hands on me?" the author wrote.

Chicago acquired Russell in a July 2014 trade with Oakland.

Rediy-Russell has a different account. This wasn't like the Chapman case or other Major League Baseball domestic-abuse cases involving Roberto Osuna and Jose Reyes that included law enforcement and a paper trail.

The Cubs meanwhile promised full cooperation with the investigation. Russell is not named in the post, nor is his ex-wife listed as the author, but the information in the blog aligns with Reidy's previous public allegations against Russell. Maybe that changes now, maybe not.

Manager Joe Maddon said he was surprised by the new accusations.

"Addy and I talk about a lot of things", Maddon said.

In this instance, Maddon being uninformed was unfunny, not to mention inexcusable.

"I have not yet spoken to Addy about it", Maddon said.
