Cubs' Addison Russell calls wife abuse allegation 'false'

Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell has had a tough year at the plate and defensively as Javy Baez has taken some of his starts at shortstop.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell is the focus of the latest probe, after a friend of Russell's wife posted on social media that Russell was "cheating on your wife, mentally & physically abusing her".

Russell's wife, Melisa, has since deleted the posts on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, but it caught MLB's attention and the screen grabs can still be found across the Internet. The post accused Russell of cheating, but made no mention of abuse. Melisa's close friend went one step further, commenting Russell had "mentally and physically" abused his wife. sparking an Major League Baseball investigation, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

A team official said the club is looking into the allegation but has no comment at this time.
