I see the other thread was locked (I had nothing to do with that...I think)

Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports that Addison Russell will be suspended "in the neighborhood of 25-40 games" under MLB's domestic violence policy.

Rogers hears that there will be an official announcement "momentarily." Russell was placed on administrative leave on September 21 after his ex-wife Melisa Reidy claimed the 24-year-old shortstop abused her both physically and mentally during their marriage. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported a few days later that MLB investigators had gathered "credible information" backing up those claims via interviews with Reidy and other witnesses. This suspension would presumably extend into the 2019 regular season.

"presumably extend into the 2019 regular season?"

you think? the cubs are eliminated...when else would the suspension take place?

Basically he's suspended until May. I say leave Baez at SS and make him play 2B when he gets back.

Should be kicked from the league.

Set an example.

"Beat a woman? Ehhhh oh it's okay. 40 games!"

Don't @ me

He absolutely should be, as should Chapman, Osuna, etc. but good luck getting "you are done in baseball if you have one reported incident of DV" into the CBA.
