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.

In 2017, Russell is batting a dismal .209 with three homers, 19 RBI, and .291 on-base percentage.

However, it appears that Russell might have a lot on his mind besides baseball according to his wife Melisa's Instagram account.

"Being free to be able to make your own choices for your own happiness beats being cheated on, lied to, & disrespected any day," she posted. #herestonewbeginnings #onlygetsbetterfromhere

The post has since been deleted.

Savagely, she posted this while the Cubs-Marlins were playing on Wednesday night. The couple has been married since last June.

"My post is meant to be empowering, not degrading. At all. I hope it empowers and inspires other women to "not take sh**" from anyone, regardless of who they are," she tweeted early Thursday morning. "Hoping to empower other women to stand up for themselves and is not a crime AND ... I think it's brave and REAL to show that life's not perfect and it's ok."
