Cubs to option Addison Russell to Triple-A

Cubs HQ

The Chicago Cubs have decided on a course of action with shortstop Addison Russell.

When Russell is eligible to come back to the major league team from his 40-game suspension by MLB for domestic violence policy, he will be optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday according to Cubs President of Operations Theo Epstein.

Epstein called it a baseball decision as they continue to monitor Russell's progress according to reports. There is no timeline but he is expected to be in Iowa for at least a few more weeks and will split time at second and shortstop.
