CHICAGO (AP) — Major League Baseball has no timetable for finishing its investigation of domestic violence allegations against Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell by his ex-wife Brian Roberts Jersey , Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday night.“Right now, we’re kind of going day by day,” Manfred said. “That’s the best I can do for you. The most important thing is to take our time, make sure we have all the facts, and make sure we try to make a decision at a point in time that it doesn’t affect roster decisions and things like that.”Manfred said it’s “conceivable” a decision is announced before the end of the playoffs Thurman Munson Jersey , though he would not say if it’s likely. He spoke prior to the wild-card game between Chicago and Colorado.Russell has denied the accusations. He was placed on administrative leave Sept. 21 after his ex-wife, Melisa Reidy, re-iterated claims of domestic abuse. He was not on the wild-card roster.MLB has said it began an investigation last year after allegations first became public.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 Reidy as a close friend —claimed Russell had “hit” his wife. The post was later deleted. Reidy declined to talk to MLB at the time because she decided it was not in her family’s best interests, her attorney http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-posada-jersey , Thomas Field, said last year.In September, a blog post attributed to Reidy described more detailed allegations, including years of physical and emotional abuse. Less than 12 hours later, MLB announced Russell had been put on leave under MLB’s domestic violence policy.Chicago acquired Russell in a July 2014 trade with Oakland. He helped the Cubs win the World Series two years ago Don Larsen Jersey , batting .238 with 21 homers and 95 RBIs in 151 games.Russell hit .250 with five homers and 38 RBIs in 130 games this season. A rough season for Felix Hernandez has led to the Seattle Mariners pitcher being moved to the bullpen.According to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, manager Scott Servais informed the pitcher of the move ahead of Thursday's game against the Houston Astros."I got nothing to say," he said after the game, perDivish.Hernandez has never pitched in relief in 398 career appearances over his 14 years in the majors.Unfortunately, this season has been historically bad for the former Cy Young award winner. His current 5.73 ERA is not only the worst of his career http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-johnny-damon-jersey , it's thesecond worst in the majors among qualified pitchers.Only Chicago White Sox starter Lucas Giolito (6.23) has a worse mark.While Hernandez has six All-Star selections in his career, he took a step back last season with a 4.36 ERA while a back injury limited him to just 16 starts. He hasn't been able to regain his form in 2018 and is coming off his worst start Tuesday.The right-hander gave up 11runs (seven earned) in a loss to the Texas Rangers and hasn't earned a win since June.Seattle simply couldn't wait any longer, especially in the hunt for a playoff spot. The latest win over the Astros put the team 2.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot, giving the team a chance at reaching the postseason for the first time since 2001.Erasmo Ramirez could potentially take Hernandez's spot in the rotation when he returns from the disabled list.
