Cubs News: Bryant on Russell distraction: "I wasn't involved in it"


by - Senior Editor -

Addison Russell was one of the Cubs players that were not in attendance at this weekend's 2019 Cubs Convention as he has been suspended for the early portions of the upcoming season for violating MLB's Joint Domestic Violence Policy.

Kris Bryant spoke with 670 The Score on Saturday about Russell's situation.

"I don't really want to be involved in it," Bryant said after being asked a question about Russell. "It's tough to be up here answering questions for him on his behalf. I know there is going to be a day you will have your chance to ask him all the questions you want. Hopefully, you get that chance. It is tough to be up here answering those questions because quite frankly, I wasn't involved in it and nobody was. I think the only person that should answer those questions is him."

Bryant and the rest of his teammates have been put into a tough situation having to answer questions about Russell when the shortstop is not available yet to the media. Bryant handled the situation well and eventually, Russell will have to man up and address the media in 2019.
