Cubs Cut Russell Year After Domestic Violence Ban
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs have cut shortstop Addison Russell.

The 2016 All-Star is now a free agent one year after he was suspended for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. Russell was banned for 40 games last offseason after a series of allegations made by ex-wife Melisa Reidy.

The 25-year-old returned to the Cubs in May and batted a career-low .237 with nine home runs. Russell made $4 million in 2019.

He likely would have made around $5 million if offered a contract.
