The Cubs have issued the following statement regarding allegations against Addison Russell:
“Last night, we were made aware of a serious claim posted on social media about Addison Russell. We reached out to Major League Baseball and, following the protocol established by MLB, will fully cooperate with the Commissioner’s Office as it gathers pertinent facts. Addison will not be in uniform tonight to allow him to work through this matter.”
This basically corroborates what we already learned and verifies earlier reports that the Cubs initiated the contact with MLB. Stay tuned.
