Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell released a statement on Friday through the MLB players' union about his allegations of domestic abuse.

"These allegations are completely false," Russell said. "I made that clear to Major League Baseball last year and reiterated it to the Cubs today. I'm confident any full and fair investigation will fully exonerate me. The protection of my children is foremost in my mind, so I will have no further comment."

Russell was placed on administrative leave by major league baseball while they investigate the allegations by his ex-wife Melisa Reidy-Russell in a recent blog post.
