Cubs' Russell placed on leave after domestic violence claims

CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell was placed on administrative leave Friday following fresh allegations of domestic violence by his ex-wife.

Last year, Melisa Reidy posted a photo on her Instagram account with a caption suggesting her husband of about 18 months had been unfaithful to her. In another post, a user - described by Melisa as a close friend - made the accusation that Russell had "hit" his wife. The post was later deleted. Russell denied the allegation and the two were soon divorced.

Late Thursday, a blog post attributed to Reidy contained more detailed allegations, including years of physical and emotional abuse.
